Birthday/ Greeting Card featuring the Cunard Ocean liner RMS Mauretania from a Marine Art Painting by Artist Malcolm Root
Holder of the coveted 'Blue Riband' for over two decades, Cunard's Mauretania of 1906 was built as part of the company's attempts to neutralise the threat of J.P Morgan's White Star Line.
Mauretania along with her sister-ship, the ill-fated Lusitania, gave Cunard the upper-hand in terms of speed across the North Atlantic and after service as a Troopship in WWI, the "Maure" returned to civilian life with near-sister Aquitania. The Blue Riband would finally be rested from her by the German liner Bremen on her maiden voyage of 1929.
Malcolm Root’s Birthday card shows the ship moored at Southampton.
