Hello Michael
Please! Firstly - Do you know whether there are any old photos of the architects at work with their plans for Q4 / QE2 on the drawing boards?
Were these (plans) all made in Liverpool?
I believe some of the people involved in QE2's later drawings (including refits) may have had desks at Lloyds Registry in Fenchurch St in London.
Do you think there'll still be plans in situ there now?

Many thanks

I do have pictures of people working on plans for Q4. Plans will have been drawn up all over the country and then submitted to the Cunard Building in Liverpool and the yard.

Dan Wallace and Cunard Chairman Sir John Brocklebank studying early Q4 plans (pre 1966) in the Cunard Building in Liverpool. Note the image of Queen Elizabeth behind and a 'tame' calendar on the wall.

Thank you so much for these, Michael
(Memories, happy ones -  flooding back!)

Interesting to think that The Original Team 'TQS' began here, and that we followed in their footsteps along the passages in that lovely building just last year!
The Liverpool building is  'friendly' with a feel of excitement and 'business' - so different to the cathedral-like Cunard Building at 25 Broadway, NYC.
