QUEEN MARY: 1936 - Daily Telegraph special supplement 5/25/36

Product Description

Cunard Line:  An original copy of the special QUEEN MARY maiden voyage supplement issued by London’s Daily Telegraph. 

Dated May 25, 1936, the sixteen-page newspaper is large (18” by 24”) and chock-a-block full of photos and articles about the fabled liner.  Stories tell of the magnificent interiors, its enormous size, the huge amount of stores needed for a voyage, the design and building of the ship, and the requisite history of the Cunard Line. 

I especially enjoyed the diverse congratulatory advertising.  Ovaltine and Shredded Wheat worm into the spotlight with banner headlines, “Supreme in Their Spheres!” and “First-Class Ware!”.  Under a photo of the First Class Library, Librairie Hachette proudly announced they provided books in eighteen languages.  A fish is saluting an anchor in an ad for Hoover Vacuum Cleaners.  Austin Reed Shops included plans of the First Class Shopping Centre with their onboard venue marked with a flag (if you step into that shop today you’ll see dozens of little drawers designed for shirts and ties).  Booth’s Gin (“The One Matured Gin”) printed not one, but two large photographs of the Observation Lounge with their product prominently displayed.  Even Imperial Paper Mills gets into the spirit with a back page spread announcing “Nearly Twice the Weight!  135,000 Tons of Paper Per Annum Manufactured by The Imperial Paper Mills Ltd.” thus proving that even back in the nautical-rich ‘30s people mixed up a ship’s size measurement with actual pounds and ounces. 

The supplement is a fun and informative read. 

Good condition with intact pages and a minimum of discoloration.
