Gavin:

As for where this images came from, I have managed to collect/purchase them over the last twenty or so years, from various postcard and ocean liner dealers.

As for photos and postcards, I currently have several thousand in my personnel collection, many like these above are quite rare and unpublished so to say.

I tend to stick with images of the Cunard Liner "Aquitania" and the other various Cunard Liners.

However another special interest is any Four Stacker, or the Big Three from Germany.

A deck shot from a pre World War 1 album showing what I believe is a section of the Mauretania's Boat Deck.
