RMS Quen Elizabeth - This is a superb areal image looks at her new extended aft decks and her new swimming pool. I took it from a 1967 Cruise brochure from my collection. Sadly these days, modern cruise ships just do not have such spacious open deck spaces, and many do not even have a full walk around Promenade Deck anymore! The photograph is from the author’s private collection.

In this photo, we see the RMS Queen Elizabeth docking in New York Harbor in 1956. The Queen Elizabeth was an luxury ocean liner operated by the Cunard Line. Her career ran from her launch on September 27, 1938 until her retirement in 1969, when she was replaced by the Queen Elizabeth II.

Painted portraits of Queen Elizabeth II, in pictures

In 2010, the Queen posed for a portrait in the same diamond necklace and earrings that she wore for her Coronation. The jewellery, made for Queen Victoria, appears in a picture commissioned for the launch of a cruise ship. It was painted by Isobel Peachey. She was commissioned by Cunard, the shipping company, who displayed the portrait on the Queen Elizabeth liner.
