HMS Queen Mary

The first Cunard QUEEN photographed by Skyfotos in Southampton water in the 1960s.
Like QE2, she was withdrawn after a successful career (in 1967) and purchased by the city of Long Beach, California, where she arrived in December 1967 after a final cruise around South America. She is still in Long Beach as a tourist attraction and as such helped put the city on the world maps. On the other side she has been costly to run and her static career has been marked by financial trouble.
