Seller: ambassadoroflight (11,637) 100%, Location: Miami Beach, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382526587905 -Riband Winners: The SS United States & The SS Queen Mary-A unique photo of the last two Blue Riband winners in a very fitting view with the Queen Mary 'following' the SS United States, motoring down the Hudson to their respective New York Piers in the late 1950's. A true ocean greyhound, the United States was by far the fastest liner ever built: with 4 sets of Westinghouse Turbines mashing out over 241,000 hp, the United States was the last liner to ever hold the Trans-Atlantic Speed Record smashing the Queen Mary's best time by over 10 hours on her maiden voyage in July, 1952, despite having to cut through a 60 mph gale blowing off Bishop Rock. She recovered the Riband for America after a 100 year wait, since the Arctic last held it a century earlier. Nice. This new Black & White Print of the original archive is on Heavy Premium Glossy Photo Paper, Large 11" x 8.5" format, (exact dimensions may vary) in flawless condition.
