S.S. Queen Mary “The Grey Ghost” WWII Era Document

An original and rare piece of WWII-era documentation relating to the operation of the RMS Queen Mary.

This original diagram from the great liner’s chart room shows an overview of the S.S. Queen Mary’s oil and fuel tanks. It has been colored in by hand using red and blue crayon and carefully marked by hand with various measurements.

Measurements taken include those for drinking water, oil fuel, S.W. ballast, fresh water, and reserve feed.

Measuring approximately 8″ x 13″, the diagram carries the Strathdon watermark. This particular chart is undated but was filed among a series of similar charts and diagrams all dating to 1944-45.

Provenance

This and many other RMS Queen Mary materials are from the private collection of John C. Wells (1909-2000) who had close business ties with the City of Long Beach during the 1960s – 1970s and collected pieces of ephemera from the ship during her early days of conversion to a museum / hotel.
