    Berengaria

    Cunard’s Berengaria makes a Southampton arrival in September 1934. The aging liner would retain her speed throughout the remainder of her life, making regular 24.5 knot crossings of the Atlantic, something that would be very important when she was running a two ship service with the new Queen Mary
  2. Queen Mary & Berengaria

    Queen Mary & Berengaria

    The new Queen Mary is seen at Southampton in April, 1936. The ship has returned from her official trials that she’d run up on the Clyde. The old Berengaria is seen on the right, making a routine departure from the port. The new liner made even this 50,000 ton vessel look rather small.

    Berengaria

    I just saw threebs' picture of the Imperator which he posted on the 4th of this month, and I thought it would be interesting to see her from an identical angle as the Berengaria. It's interesting to compare the structural changes made by Cunard so soon after acquiring the ship. Although undated, t

    New York Harbor, 1936

    This group shot from the air over New York’s super liner piers was taken in 1936. It shows the Europa, Rex, Normandie, Georgic, and Berengaria docked between their scheduled Atlantic voyages and cruises. I’m not sure of the month this was taken, so it’s possible the Queen Mary was already in servi

    Olympic, Berengaria, and Leviathan

    A trio of Atlantic giants is seen docked together at Southampton in the mid 1920’s. The picture provides a nice view of the Olympic seen from the stern.
  8. Berengaria

    Berengaria

    Cunard’s Berengaria was the company’s largest vessel from the time she entered the fleet in January, 1921. She made a few voyages under her original German name Imperator, before being officially renamed Berengaria in late February. She was converted to oil fuel at the Armstrong Whitworth Yard on
  9. The Big Three

    The Big Three

    Cunard's three great Express Liners are seen together at Southampton in 1920. The three liners, Mauretania, Aquitania, and Berengaria would maintain the companies express services for the next 14 to 15 years. Artist unknown.
  10. Atlantic Giants

    Atlantic Giants

    SN's own Harley Crossley painted this view of famous North Atlantic liners gathered at Southampton at some time during the late 1920's. Present are, Aquitania, Berengaria, Homeric, and Olympic. This painting was made from a photograph posted earlier on SN. Link to photograph: http://www.shipsnost

    Imperator

    The German liner Imperator (52117 grt/29881 nrt) was launched on May 23rd, 1912 by the A.G. Vulcan, Hamburg and commissioned on May 24th, 1913. She was the largest vessel of her time, being the first ship to exceed the 50,000 grt mark. When returning to Hamburg on July 8th, 1914 Imperator was laid u

    Southampton, 1932

    View from the air of the port of Southampton in what I believe is 1932. Perhaps those with sharper eyes than mine, can identify all of the vessels present.

  17. RMS Berengaria

    RMS Berengaria

    Cunard's RMS Berengaria (1912-1938). Originally built in Germany, she was handed over to Britain after WW-I as a war-prize, presumably in reparations for the loss of the Lusitania. In her original guise as the SS Imperator, this ship featured had an enormous and grotesque figurehead on her bow, wh
