Special Delivery

On this day in 1936, after nearly five years of working, waiting, and working again, shipbuilders John Brown & Company officially handed over the brand new Queen Mary to Cunard White Star. Hooray!










A ship worker speaks here about the Queen Mary arriving in Southampton for the first time after her sea trials.
