Cunard returns to its spiritual home in Liverpool in 2015 to mark the 175th anniversary of its first scheduled passenger service to North America. The most famous shipping company in the world has crossed the Atlantic every year since, and its milestone will be celebrated with the most spectacular gathering of the Cunard Queens on the river Mersey. Cunard Queens on the Mersey marks the 25 year period in the company's history since the first call to the river by a Cunard Queen. In July1990, more than a million spectators thronged the banks of the river to greet Queen Elizabeth 2 during her mai--den call at Liverpool. Since that first call, QE2 returned a further eight times. The current flagship of the Fleet, Queen Mary 2, remains the largest ship ever to sail up the river. Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth each attract tens of thousands of spectators to Liverpool's World Heritage Site waterfront during their calls. Cunard Queens on the Mersey presents a pictorial record of each Cunard visit to Liverpool since 1990 using previously unseen images from the Cunard collecti--on, together with personal accounts from Commodores and Captains, other officers and personalities who have helped shape the maritime history of this of this world-fa--mous port which will forever be linked to Cunard.Vom Verlag:
