More than a million people came to witness one of the most important moments in maritime history when Cunard's Three Queens returned to their spiritual home. The eyes of the world were on Liverpool - the famous shipping line's birthplace - as Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth gathered on the River Mersey. It was one of the biggest events ever staged in the city and a momentous occasion which will live long in the memory. This limited edition book relives that incredibly special weekend in May 2015 when Liverpool took centre stage in the global celebrations to mark Cunard's 175th anniversary. Stunning images, captured by professional and amateur photographers, and detailed accounts of the ships' movements provide a unique and fascinating insight into the historic homecoming.
Queen Mary 2 is also featured setting sail from the Mersey to North America on 4 July - 175 years to the day Cunard's Britannia made its first transatlantic crossing. These were all highlights of Liverpool's magical One Magnificent City summer which also included Time Liners on Light Night, The Crossing, the International Mersey River Festival, The Maurie and much more...
