QE2: 1969 - Large color maiden arrival photo at New York

Product Description

Cunard Line:  A large (11” by 14”) color photograph showing the maiden arrival of the QE2 at New York on May 7, 1969. 

The aerial view shows the ship entering the North River with the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island in the distance.  I count thirty-two tugs and welcoming boats clustered around the new QUEEN.  Her decks and bow are filled with passengers and crew taking in the scene.  It must have been an especially poignant moment for Commodore William “Bil” Warwick, perhaps one of the figures on the bridge wings.  He had ushered the ship through construction and disastrous trials where Cunard had almost rejected the ship outright because of defects.  The QE2’s maiden voyage was delayed for five months.  Fortunately for all of us, Cunard stuck with the ship.  The rest is history. 

Very good condition.
