  • At Mach 2 three days after being on QE2...
...and I have voted.

Once again, with some difficulty especially over the third vote!

These pictures tell a story! 

Photos from the early years of QE2 in New York 1969 and 1972, her second maiden voyage after re-engining calling at NY in May 1987, early morning arrival in NY in 1997 and 2000 tied up on the Hudson River, evening departure in 2003, tandem departure from NY with QM2 in 2004 plus transatlantic photos from and of QE2.  Finally the final seasons photos.

The Hamburg photos are equally of interest as they paint a picture of the welcome, the sail away, plus photos of the port. 

Choosing just three favourites will be a difficult choice to make, but I will enjoy making the effort.   :)

Just voted ! It gets harder to choose at every competition ! I guess it is just because our beloved QE2 is such a beauty and draws everyone to her !
