We now share photos taken on 21 October 2014 during a tour of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.
Here is an image of Long Beach harbor on a smoggy, hazy day.
Our blog’s photographer with cruise ship in background. Long Beach was one of the stops on her cruise.
Walking to the ship.
Let’s go inside this historic ship before going outside and up on deck.
A sign on the tour.
We will now view some images from the ship’s bridge.
This image looks to be outside the bridge area.
Wheels for steering the ship.
Another view inside the bridge.
Old style gauges.
Old radio equipment for communications – ship to ship and ship to shore.
On board telephones.
Let’s go up on deck. Here we see one of the massive smoke stacks from below.
This next image gives a little perspective as to the size of the smoke stacks.
Another view of the ship.
The front mast of the ship.
Another view of the front mast area.
An official Queen Mary trash bin out on deck.
Looks like a British style phone booth.
More things to be seen on deck.
Last view of the deck area.
A view of the ship from a distance. We see the stern of the vessel.
A little closer now, and we can read Queen Mary Liverpool.
A view down to the nearby dockside.
Apparently, the late Princess Diana was being celebrated.
Here is the entrance to the exhibition.
It is puzzling that this mannequin is without a head. The dress is on display.
Our final image was taken mid morning – shortly before touring the ship. Cranes at the port are seen in the distance.
