Majestic

Doing some research at Newhaven Museum, I came across this, which confirms the identity of the liner seen in the background of the photo of the Queen Mary in the graving dock at Southampton.

Thank you good sir! The info from my book Southampton Liners, was oddly quite wrong.
Nice to know the identity now.
Regards
Paul

I can see exactly WHY she's called Majestic!

I am a little confused. To mean this is Majestic moving from the Western Docks after the arrival of the QM? She is flying the Cunard and White Star flags, but she was laid up before the QM arrived in Southampton. When she left, she had her masts and stacks cut down for passage under the bridge near Rosyth.

No, I don't mean that the photo was taken there or then. I don't know where or when this photo was taken. The Caption in the Museum archive says merely "Glorious Days - Majestic"

Meechingman,
Many thanks for sharing a lovely picture with us. I am quite a fan of Majestic. I am not sure which photo you were referring to before, but Majestic is visible in some photos of Queen Mary in the graving dock so your statement would seem quite right.
I think Dick Sloan posted some photos taken from Majestic/Caledonia's decks in late 1936 or 1937, and Queen Mary was visible in the background.
Best wishes,
Mark.
