Queen Mary

Most of the drawings in this book were redrawn from plans held by Glasgow University Archives. Mrs Alma Topen, manager of the Business Records Collection, has been of great help in providing copies of the material. Across the Atlantic, Mr William M Winberg, Exhibits and Archives Supervisor on the Queen Mary, and his assistant, Ellene Mahoney, have been immensely helpful with additional information.

War Service

Foreword

The Queen Mary project in Long Beach began in May 1967, with Cunard Line's announcement that the ship would be put up for sale.
