RMS Queen Elizabeth, NYC, March 1949

My mother's photos in 1949 when she was on one of her last 10-day round-trips from Southampton to New York as a puser on Cunard liner RMS Mauretania. She has never returned to NY after Aug 1949. This is the original QE, the war-time troop and post-war refugee carrier, the one which was pensioned to to be a floating university and sank after a fire in Hong Kong harbour.
