The QE2 at John Browns486 viewsI'm not sure where this picture came from, it was in my grandfather's papers.

On the back it says that it shows Engineer's Mate George Lawler, one of "four burley cranemen" who have taken on overtime at John Browns at night scaring birds away from the QE2 in the fitting out basin below, earning themselves an extra 30 shillings a night!!!
