The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Queen Elizabeth 2 at Halifax, N.S. Oct.1st 2007

Cunard's QE2 outbound from Halifax on 1st October 2007. This may well be her last visit to Sam Cunard's hometown as she is sadly to be sold to become a bauble in a sandbank somewhere East of Suez. Capnken photo.

There seems to be a whole lot of short-sightedness regarding preserving 'Iconic' LINERS inside the UK (there isn't one!!) P&O; even let the SS Canberra go to the cutters' torch. Both these fine liners had served their country in War and Peace. The 'Big Bucks' count I suppose. I would have nominated Glasgow for her retirement.
