From the Photo Dealers Associated photo contest "rejects" collection. The Empress of Britain, July 27 1932, as photographed by Mrs. E. Fox, of 611 Montague Street, Eccleshall Sheffield. Title: The Lady in White. Second of several from the collection.
The photos I've posted on this and the other threads must have been from
the "considered but not chosen" lot. They were all carefully mounted in an album, along with many (in fact, mostly) non-nautical travel themed photos.
there is a lovely paperback book here by Clive Harvey that is just loaded with good illustrations and information on this vessel "Empress of Britain - and in a very well presented volume too. I was sent an early copy when Tempus was just changing formats to the nicer look they have now with better quality illustrations and matte covers. This is a very handsome book with a great cover design as well - made a good impression.
I forgot - I am sorry - despite numerous and repeated attempts to correct the problem, I don't get PM's from this site. Goodness knows what I have missed all these years. I have tried to have this fixed, as well as have my user ID corrected to Mauretania19061936, for years - but no one ever does anything about it. Please write me directly at [email protected]
