Record List

From the New York Times on this day in 1947:

QUEEN MARY HERE WITH 2,002 ABOARD; Windsors, Poletti on Record Peacetime List -- 24-Hour Turn-Around Is Sought

Delayed a day by striking British seamen in home ports and carrying a record peacetime list of passengers, the Cunard White Star liner Queen Mary docked here yesterday ready to establish another record and sail again this afternoon on her eastward crossing.
