    Painting done by Frank H. Mason for use as a Cunard poster in 1939. I think he should have lowered the ship a little beneath the horizon, it looks a bit like a sinking stage background tapestry that which is ahead of the bow. But compared to what the average Montague Dawson clipper parades itself o

    On 3rd June 1965 she should depart for a cruise to the North Cape. Was this her last trip, apart for her final voyage to the breakers?

    The Mauretania is shown under escort in the Western Approaches as she heads for the French Port of Brest in 1918. Burnell Poole’s painting gives an accurate and detailed view of the ship as she appeared while camouflaged for transport duty during World War 1. Even in moderate swells, the military

    According to the guy I purchased this picture from, the image shows the new Mauretania leaving her builders yard of Cammell Laird in Birkenhead, England in late May, 1939. Her career would just get started, when the Second World War would break out and change the course of her life.

    Mauretania arrived at Rosyth on the evening of 4 July, 1935. The piper seen in this image was there to greet her as the ship was tied up alongside the river side of Metal Industries large dry dock. He would play the lament “Flowers of the Forest”, and was photographed while doing so in a well-reme

    Mauretania

    This shot of the Mauretania was taken at Southampton in the mid-1920’s. Because of an absence of any of the larger ships of the time, it’s also kind of a deceiving picture in that the liner looks exceptionally large for a 31,000 ton ship. She towers over everything else in sight except for the por
