Description On 22 October 1907 the Tyne's most famous passenger ship, the legendary Mauretania, left the river on her delivery voyage to Liverpool. Queens of the Tyne celebrates Mauretania's 100th birthday, and looks back at some of the many superb passenger liners built on the Tyne between 1888 and 1973. As well as the speed queen Mauretania, Queens of the Tyne contains a detailed section on Carpathia - the heroic ship that rescued the Titanic's survivors - plus Monarch of Bermuda, Bergensfjord, Vistafjord, Empress of Canada, Northern Star, Franconia, Laconia, and many more. The photographs which generously illustrate the book have been sourced from the collections at Tyne and Wear Archives Service, Newcastle Libraries, and from private collections.
