Cunard and ocean liner expert Chris Frame reveals the story of the transatlantic race that resulted in the construction of the original Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.

Discover how and why the Cunard Queens were built, their impact on Britain’s recovery from the Great Depression and their outstanding military service during World War II.

Tracing the various links between Southampton and the Queens, Chris will discuss their contribution to the boom in tourism and commerce in the 1940s and 1950s, as well as their decline and eventual retirement.

Chris’s talk will also feature wonderful photos of the Queens and a unique historic video of both ships being launched.

Maritime Historian Chris Frame published his first website on the QE2 in 1999, which grew to become the Cunard history website. Chris regularly appears on television news, documentaries and radio as a subject matter expert for ocean liner history, cruise ships and aviation.
