A second issue, the ‘RMS “Queen Mary” Number’

(Appendix List No. 111) was published on May 23rd 1936 just before the liner made her voyage across the Atlantic on May 27th. Within the pages we have diagrams of the ship in section and in detail; the history of Atlantic travel; pictures of the complementary facets of art and comfort which were united in the ship’ s accommodation and facilities; statistical details and the usual ‘amazing comparisons’. As a double page colour spread photograph of the ‘Queen Mary’ at sea.
The cover shows, in an oval frame, a coloured photograph of the liner steaming into the sunset. The surrounding details are the now familiar ‘triumphal’ symbols of praise and strength in red, white and blue.
This is issue number 5066, vol. 188, pages 891-938, measuring 37 x 26 cm and priced at one shilling.
