Queen Mary's Hull Areas

Here are some photographs taken in the Queen Mary's boiler rooms and cargo holds. Since the original intent was to develop these spaces for a museum, all the boilers and two of the four engines were completely removed and sold for scrap. The museum project was never fully realized and the areas which once held the boilers and the two outer engines now lay in ruin and neglect. It would cost countless thousands of dollars to clean up these areas in to something useful. The massive damage done to these areas is a tragedy. I did not take the pictures nor do I accept any responsibility for their existence. They simply tell a sad story that is a significant part of the history of the Queen Mary.

Here we can see some of the walkways that were over the boilers. You can see the burn marks where the workers used acetelyn torches to remove engine and boiler fittings.

Queen Mary Cargo Room

A View of a Cargo Room

Here we see part of a cargo room on the Queen Mary. This area was once part of the original guided tour, which lasted 2 hours and took visitors all over the ship. Much more interesting than what is offered now.

Queen Mary Fan Room

The Fan Room

Here is a view of the fan room. Again the area was left in an utter shambles by the demolition.

Queen Mary Stem

In the Bow

Here we are in the very front tip of the ship at the bow, and can see the stem here.
