An historical brass sign which makes it clear that only first class passengers are allowed beyond a certain point. This could be used to illustrate the existence of the class system in society, as well as the privilege experienced by those who travel first class. The plaque itself is located on the SS Great Britain which was an advanced passenger steamship designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service between Bristol and New York. While other ships had previously been built of iron or equipped with a propeller, Great Britain was the first to combine these features in a large ocean-going ship. She was the first steamer to cross the Atlantic, which she did in 1845, in the then-record time of 14 days (one day faster than the previous record holder, the SS Great Western).
