The Original London Gallery

The London Gallery, designed by Stefan Buzas
and Alan Irvine was situated on Boat Deck Port side was managed by Marlborough Fine Arts.

1972 refit: The London Gallery, used as a display area for British art, on the Boat deck was removed. An original plan for this area to be rebuilt into three additional deluxe staterooms (8202,8204,8206 shown on passenger deck plans released) similar to the new rooms on Boat deck midships, was abandoned in favour of a reading room. Work to complete the Reading Room was not actually completed until 1974 and information suggests that until then the area was used as a quiet area.

During the 1983 refit, the area was converted to a computer centre, then converted into the Boardroom during the 1987 refit

Looking for photos of the original London Gallery. Please post if you have pictures of the London Gallery. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Was this an early start to what we now know as the dreaded Art Auctions... ;)
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

I love the funky look of the original QE2!

This looks so much more groovy than the Boardroom ever did... and now, I suppose we associate it with the finalisation of the Dubai sale...
