Description

Over two hundred individual locations, organized by deck, are listed in this cross-section of the transatlantic flagship of the Cunard and White Star Line. The diagram was published in a book of comparisons designed to promote the ship at a time of financial difficulty for the recently merged lines and includes such boasts as “the voice of the Queen Mary can be heard ten miles away!”

The ocean liner was converted to a troopship during WWII and retired permanently from service in 1967. Since then, she has resided in Long Beach harbor as a hotel, museum, and tourist attraction.
