RMS Queen Mary

£7.95

Description

A new souvenir guide book written by Roger Hardingham about the world’s most famous liner.
Since her launch in 1934, the Queen Mary quickly became a favourite ship and a special place in the hearts of passengers and crew. Sailing across the Atlantic for 1001 crossings, the liner was in service for 31 years before retirement by the Cunard Line in 1967. Fortunately, the Queen Mary was saved from scrap and bought by the City of Long Beach in California as a hotel, attraction with a series of restaurants.
This new publication outlines the historical relevance of this great liner with dozens of colour and black & white images, with chapters on her launching, war service, art on board, life at sea and the vast number of stately rooms still available to view by the visitor today.
