Super Model


From The Lewiston Daily Sun on this day in 1936:

The Portland Tourist Company had displayed in its window last week a tiny model of Britain's giant liner, "Queen Mary". This 27-inch wooden model has been causing an unusual amount of interest and Harry Abrahamson, manager of the agency, plans to exhibit the ship for several weeks. The largest model of the huge liner, now in New York, measures 74 inches and is reported to have cost more than $20,000 to build. Harry Abrahamson...hopes to have this larger model on display in Portland within the following year.
