2016 is the eightieth anniversary of the Queen Mary’s maiden voyage. Constructed in the 1930s, she sailed until 1967 and lives on as a museum and hotel in California. One of the most famous ocean liners of all time, the Queen Mary was also heroic, serving valiantly in wartime, and crossed the Atlantic more than 1,000 times.
She was an ocean-going treasure and idolised by passengers, crew and Hollywood stars. She possessed an undefinable chemistry: ‘Something in the woodwork that embraced everyone,’ one staff member remarked. She was also part of Cunard, perhaps the most famous shipping line on the Atlantic.
Along with the history of the Queen Mary, Maritime Royalty: The Queen Mary and the Cunard Queens will look at her companion, the Queen Elizabeth, as well as the subsequent Queens – the QE2 and the current day Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoriaand Queen Elizabeth.
Beautifully illustrated with colour and mono photographs, this is a fitting tribute to the Queen Mary as well as the great Queens and Cunard.
