"QUEEN VICTORIA" visited Liverpool to remember RMS "AQUITANIA"
The affiliation between CUNARD and the city of Liverpool goes back to 1840 and is still very much alive today, despite Southampton being the UK home port for the CUNARD LINE. "QUEEN VICTORIA" visited Liverpool last 30th and 31st of May to remember the maiden departure of another famous CUNARD passenger ship the "AQUITANIA", she left the Mersey for New York on the 31.5.1914. It never fails to impress me the amount of people that turns out to see the CUNARD ships every time they visit, this was quite an extraordinary event witnessed by thousands, a great warm up for next May 2015 when the three current passenger ships of the CUNARD LINE fleet visit once again the city of Liverpool on the same day to officially celebrate 175 years of the departure of the BRITANNIA to the New World. This and next posts will show as much as possible the visit of "QUEEN VICTORIA" to the Mersey, a sea of photos that will do the writing and talking, 30th and 31st May 2014
