AR QE2 : Architectural Review June 1969
« on: Feb 17, 2011, 09:34 PM »
Myles lent me a copy of his last year (I still have it here in fact - sorry Myles) and its wonderful.  So when one popped up on eBay the other day, I felt compelled to put a really high bid on it to make sure I got it (even though I can't afford it).  I won't mind giving Myles his copy back now!!

 Isnt it a most fasinating,wonderful and highly interesting read.. Of course there is no charge for the loan of it..
 Couldnt you raid the  TQS funds box and claim this purchase as expenses......
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

this is brilliant and I will need to put up my radar for one.  I especially like the STBD to port view of the Double Down Room in the 2nd photo.

It is a stunning publication - the highlight for me is the one and only photo I have ever seen of the Grill Room Bar as it was in 1969.

I agree. I particularly like the photos of the stairs.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Agreed! As Rob says above, if only we could go back to 1969 and see with our own eyes....

Architectural Review June 1969 for sale
I was sorting out my attic after 15 years and came across my old Architectural and design magazines.  I was amazed that this QE2 issue sells for £145.

Rather than put my copy on eBay I'd like my copy to go to a good home so will sell this to any established user of this forum for £100.  Reply to this post with your email address and I will get in contact.

The copy is in good condition considering its age. I neatly clipped a few enquiry coupons for building materials but the interior is in good condition and the QE2 part is totally unscathed.
