RMS Queen Elizabeth

Launch 1939

The RMS Queen Elizabeth was built on slipway four at John Brown & Company in Clydebank, Scotland and became the world's largest liner. 


The interiors were fitted out by McInnes Gardner in co-operation by a team of artists. The elaborate art deco interior designs was followed through in the ,furniture and art objects.

RMS Queen Elizabeth first entered service in February 1940 as a troopship in the Second World War, and it was not until October 1946 that she served in her intended role as an ocean liner.

Sadly the ship came to an end by arson in 1972.
