The stoker

I found this poem about a occupation now long gone, a job my granddad had in that era. The poem was published about a month before the at the time worlds largest steam powered ship Titanic sank, in the march issue of "Technical World Magazine" of 1912.

Hi, Do you know if there is a list of ships or grandpa worked on? Maybe Dad has one. I thought that might be fun to know, and maybe some of them survived and became museum ships.

Not that I am aware of, but I think there are sources for one.
