RMS Queen Mary

Details

This book tells the story of Cunard's RMS Queen Mary, who along with Queen Elizabeth covered the transatlantic route from Southampton to New York via Cherbourg, the British answer to the German and French superliners. She was launched in May 1936 and immediately won the coveted Blue Riband, winning it again in 1938, before she served as a troopship in the war. She then carried on plying the Atlantic route with Queen Elizabeth until the jet age changed the world again and she was retired, now preserved as a floating museum and restaurant in Long Beach, California. Andrew Britton presents a wealth of unpublished material and ephemera from his collection to tell the story of this liner, including wartime views, shots of her 'grey ghost' paintwork, behind the scenes photographs, from the air shots, interior views and a wide selection of menus, log books, timetables, tickets and much more besides. Even including captain's invitations, this book offers a captivating trip through the life of a liner.
