The shipping line that owned the Lusitania, the Queen Mary and the QE2 was founded in the 1830s by Samuel Cunard, an entrepreneur from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Having secured lucrative Royal Mail contracts, he placed orders with Clyde shipbuilders for the vessels that would pioneer the transatlantic steamer trade. This book celebrates the history of the line with more than 200 postcards, photographs, illustrations and ephemera from the earliest vessels to the latest luxury cruise ships.
