Cunard Queen Mary Ship Letter Card - Postcard Friendship Friday

The "Queen Mary" sailed the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 until it retired in 1967.  It was a troop ship during WW2. It is now berthed in Long Beach as a museum ship and hotel. Since this folded note card was printed in England I would assume that this letter/card is pre 1967.
To learn more about the Queen Mary their website is http://www.queenmary.com/

I have not seen the DVD linked to Amazon.com but it shows ghostly contacts made on the Queen Mary.  Also on the Queen Mary site they have a Halloween graphic.  I bet there is a great celebration of Halloween on board. Maybe a few ghostly visitors will come.

What a wonderful postcard! I visited the Queen Mary many years ago--almost 30 years ago, I think. She was lovely. Thank you for the memories!

Happy PFF!

Amazing those huge ships. I would like to know more about Beth's adventures at the Queen Mary in 1980. Now I keep hearing the theme of The Love Boat:)

Beautiful ship. I have these wonderful visions of the old cruises as being very elegant. I did go on one of the Love Boat cruises. It was enjoyable, but I wouldn't call it elegant.

A lovely ship to sail on, I like those old ship cards, nice letter card.
The new Queen (Elizabeth 3) in the long line of Cunard liners set off on her maiden voyage this week.

Those ships were so very beautiful. Modern cruise liners just don't compare.

great postcard- perhaps printed for the passengers of the ship, for their mail?
Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

I've seen it and the Galloping Goose, but I've never had the chance to get on it and probably never will. Great card!

I havn't seen a picture of her for years. My Dad was on the Queen Mary for part of the war, he had many stories to tell. Great card! Brought back memories for me.

Love it. I have always been interested in ships.........especially Titantic. I would love to be able to go aboard and to look at the cabins and inside of these lovely old ships. I also love vintage cat Halloween cards like the one on your last post! blessings,Kathlen

What a stately ship - she sure lived up to her name! I read a book about the refurbishing of the QM for WWII. Quite an interesting story.
