Ship Shots...

I am going to post pictures from around the ship.  I am having a little tough morning with the chemo....so this won't be fancy....but I hope you enjoy seeing all the Art Deco style around the ship.


 Floor Mosaic  of the ship as you enter the lobby.


This is looking on the outside of the ship with all the rivets.

 Isn't this the coolest mailbox?


The light fixture in our restroom.


Original faucet.

Bell in honor of anniversary of ship.
 
 This is funny.  It sits right outside Chelsea's Restarant.


2nd Class children's play area.

 Can I  just take this home please?


Original china.


Call buttons to get service to your room.


Looking out a cabin porthole.
Look at all the beautiful wood.


Smoking on ship was allowed and very much in style.



Original postcards....5 cents.



This is on the Promenade.  One side was the library and the other the 1st class smoking lounge. Now it is all shopping.  Oh, by the way.....make sure you have money and lots of it!!


This Frieze is gorgeous and is original.


This framing of all the different woods used on the ship.


Look at the door with the little round window...



These are original dolls that you could buy in the ship's heyday!....and no, they won't let you buy them, as IF I could afford one!


This is the original tub "turner on-er"....Gee, I don't know what it is called.

Cold, warm and hot.....


All the clocks from around the world above the lobby desk.

Have a good day my peeps!!

I thoroughly enjoyed your photos! I had the pleasure of spending a night aboard the Queen Mary back in 1996. Sending positive energy your way, hope you overcome the effects of the increased medication very soon!

I am sorry that this round of chemo is getting you down. I hope you are feeling much better soon, Ceekay. Those are GREAT photos from the ship. It must have been a lot of fun seeing all the things that were in vogue at the time. xo Diana

Is it the increase of the meds that is getting to you. You have to be so sick of chemo. One tough lady for sure.....
Love the pictures. You are creative in thinking outside the box. I also want that first doll. So glad you got to do this Feel better soon.

What a nifty tour, Ceekay! I had no idea that it was such a floating museum. Hope that you have felt better as the day went on and that you'll be feeling much better tomorrow.
