The SS Great Britain has important Trollopian connections. Anthony and his wife Rose sailed out to Australia on the SS Great Britain to visit their son in Australia. While on the voyage, Anthony maintained his regular writing schedule and produced Lady Anna by the time they disembarked.
The SS Great Britain is now a museum in Bristol, the city where she was built. She is down to the final five museums in the public vote to have a special installation created by artist Luke Jerram and installed on site in October 2015 as part of Museums at Night.
