After going through some of my Grandfathers old photos I came across these stunning images of the Queen Mary during her war time service.
I have decided to make digital copies of his images and make them available for download. The resolution of the images are 2900 x 2300 Pixels and are in jpg format.
There are three unique images of the ship, in both sepia and black and white.(You will receive 6 files) The pictures are available for instant download after payment.
A little history about the Queen Mary’s war time service:
The Queen Mary was converted to a troop carrying vessel some time in late 1940. her hull, superstructure and funnels were painted navy grey. Inside, stateroom furniture and decoration were removed and replaced with triple-tiered wooden bunks (which would later be replaced by standee bunks). Six miles of carpet, 220 cases of china, crystal and silver service, tapestries and paintings were removed and stored in warehouses for the duration of the war.
In December 1942, the Queen Mary was carrying 16,082 American troops from New York to Great Britain, a standing record for the most passengers ever transported on one vessel.
