Lusitania to QE2 – The Great Clyde-Built Ships

In the century spanning from the 1860s until the 1960s, the shipyards on the banks of the River Clyde constructed among the world’s greatest passenger ships. Liners such as the Lusitania, Aquitania, Empress of Britain, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth were internationally famous on account of their size, speed and luxurious interiors. But the Clyde shipyards also built many other less prestigious passenger ships besides, ranging from colonial liners and passenger-cargo vessels to packet ships like the Maid of Kent and Caledonian Princess. This book documents a significant aspect of British design, creativity and shows that the making of passenger ships was a national effort. Now published.
