Any information is welcome.
I bought this photo along with other shipping photos at a car boot sale, the above information is on the back of the photo along with what I presume is the photographers name....J Osgood.
Queen Elizabeth outbound and United States inbound for Southampton, 1953. Taken from Cowes Parade.
From a 3'' x 2'' photo.
My album gives just 1953 but this must have been a unique occasion. When was it?
Mid thirties: the Mauretania steams past half a mile off Cowes. The Royal Yacht Squadron's premises to the left. (As I understand it, nearly all the English Ship's Nostalgia members belong to that club,- and the members from Down Under are terribly envious!) Stein
