R.M.S. 'Queen Mary' under construction, Clydebank, 1934.
Photograph of 'Queen Mary', then known as '534', under construction at John Brown's shipyard, Clydebank. Work on the massive liner had been halted between 1931 and 1934 due to lack of funds, but the merger of Cunard and White Star Line and a nine-and-a-half million pound government loan saved the vessel. She was launched in September 1934 by Queen Mary.
