Every time I see these photos I am fascinated by the detail and the story they tell. 

On the first batch of photos (nos. 3,4,5) you see the teak decking being laid on a "dreich" Scottish day. I always imagined that the decking would have been laid later in the build process when there was less chance of damage but that does not seem to be the case. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Thank you very much Jane, for posting these fabulous historical photos!
Seeing her funnel being fitted is WONDERFUL ;D ;D
Nice to see the picture of John Brown's sign on the building too!!

We all owe you a GREAT BIG HUG!

Given the programme on QE2 last week... l make no shame in bumping this topic. trouble was l was looking for something else.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
