QUEEN MARY: 1936 - "Weekly Illustrated Special QUEEN MARY Number" May 1936

Product Description

Cunard Line: The special "Weekly Illustrated" QUEEN MARY number printed to commemorate the maiden voyage of the ship in May 1936.

Perhaps the best of the British QM souvenir magazines, this large (11 1/2" by 15 1/2") contains fifty-six pages filled with hundreds of detailed photos and articles describing all aspects of the MARY.

The opening pages have a wonderful drawing showing the bows of the mightiest ships of the day - REX, MAURETANIA, BREMEN, NORMANDIE, and towering above them all, the QUEEN MARY.

The first few articles deal with the ship's construction. There is a great aerial photo of the rusting "534" when work was stopped for two years. Another beautiful full page photo shows the stern just before her launch. There is so much detail you can actually see the rivets. MARY's launch is covered and then the fitting out process. Artists including Doris Zinkeisen, James Woodford, and Margot Gilbert are shown working on the ship's artwork.

There are photos of the King and Queen visiting, of the ship being nudged down the Clyde, of her first arrival at Southampton, and during her sea trials. The Illustrated London News cut-away is reprint (in b&w).

Eight pages are filled with big interior photos. I am awed by the ship and her interiors eight-six years later - imagine the impact on Depression-weary Britain!

Towards the back there are pages with stats and even a few paid ads for Marconi Radio, Ovaltine, and Dubarry Talcum Powder.

If you are a QUEEN MARY fan you will spend many hours poring through this issue!

Fair condition with loose covers and wear.
