The 1930s were hard times for the great transatlantic shipping companies. Changes in US law in the 1920s restricted the number of migrants that would be allowed into the country, removing the chief source of the income the shipping companies had enjoyed before the First World War, while the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed reduced tourist numbers. In 1934, Cunard and the White Star Line merged, a condition of the British government loan that allowed Cunard to finish Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth. In this book, renowned ocean liner expert William H. Miller looks at the Cunard-White Star liners of the 1930s, a period in which many former White Star Line ships went to the breakers as Cunard-White Star looked to modernise.
