The Cunard R.M.S. Queen Elizabeth
Nice mid-50s Cunard postcard with an artist’s rendering of the original Queen Elizabeth, launched in 1938, but only carried troops until 1946, when it entered regular commercial service. The artist is C. F. Hopkinson, who actually worked for Cunard as an accountant, according to this posting.
This nice postcard is from the late 1940s. United used that logo from 1940 to 1954. “Mainliners” were DC-3s. With world-wide production, some 16,000 of these planes entered service somewhere…and some are probably still flying.
