Start of Something Big

On this day in 1931, work began in Southampton on a dry dock big enough to accommodate Cunard White Star's new liner, job no. 534, later to be christened, Queen Mary. The ship's future berth would be named King George V Graving Dock in honor of Queen Mary's husband. The ship is pictured there [left] in later years.
