Queen Mary II Prepares to Leave London

Photographs  Andrew King 2009

TS QUEEN MARY prepares to leave London - November 03, 2009. The former Denny build Clyde Steamer been used as a floating pub / restaurant on the Thames by Bass Leisure Retail. She has been sold for further use at La Rochelle, France.

Andrew King writes: " I think quite a few ISS readers may be interested to know that QUEEN MARY II has now moved from her berth on the Thames. She was there last Tuesday [November 03] when I took the photographs and but had gone by the afternoon of November 11. The photographs show the funnels and foremast lying on the deck and a workbarge alongside. Part of the escape stairway had been cut away to give access to the ship and the stairs are also on the deck."
