Very creative series. I think my favorite is 2 with the stacks and lifeboat framed in the window.

Is the Queen a hotel now?

The Queen Mary has been a hotel for many years. I did get to stay on it when I was part of the Navy Public Affairs group that recommissioned the
battleship USS New Jersey. The rooms were small but the experience of being on the ship after seeing it New York when I was growing up was quite the experience me. I have a vivid recollection of the view from Weehawken, N.J. as the tugboats nudged the ship out into the Hudson River to get the liner underway on the journey across the Atlantic. What a sound the ships steam whistle made. It seemed to vibrate the whole harbor. Another post of the Queen Mary photographs will be put up tomorrow.

Nice series Pixelmaster.

My father sailed on this ship going overseas during World War II. I saw it many years ago at a pier in New York. Quite impressive.
