Abstract: The Principality of Monaco, of which Monte-Carlo is a part, is inevitably associated in the public mind with the froth of life, as a place where it is better to be decorative than useful. Yet, despite this almost universally accepted view of Monte-Carlo, serious, valuable work has been going on there for nearly 65 years, work w-hich has saved an incalculable number of line ships and brave seamen from Davy Jones’ Locker. Because of this work the navigation of the seven seas and the approaches to ports the world over have become easier and safer.
