Come Up and See Me Sometime

On this day in 1948, Mae West was aboard the RMS Queen Mary, on her way to New York after making professional appearances in London. West declared that while in England she added six pounds to her curvaceous frame. It seems she learned to like not only tea, but the scones and clotted cream that customariliy accompanies it. She is pictured here aboard the ship, near the Verandah Grill--a popular place for sighting movie stars and the media who loved them.
