At 20.30 hours on the 16th of November 1907, we can witness the maiden departure of the Mauretania from Liverpool bound for New York.

Mauretania became the most distinguished of all the great liners.
Mauretania held the Blue Ribband of the Atlantic for longer than any other ship, ever, over 22 years.

A very remarkable, very popular, hardworking ship, twenty-two years in continuous service.
This was at a time when speed was essential to win highly profitable mail contracts & when immigration to the U.S.A. was at its peak.

I’ve only painted Mauretania twice, the first for a gentleman who collects liner paintings and specifically wanted and example of a ‘Gordon Frickers’.
He and I  can up with “Mauretania, Maiden Departure” which sold quite well as a print via Solomon & Whithead.
I still have a very few copies left…
The second was completed back in 1992, a small painting  which quickly sold.
I also still have my notes and my copy of ‘Mauretania, Engineering’.
She was a great and gallant ship, I guess you know her history?
There was even a Mauretania Restaurant on the QE2 with a huge splendid model of the famous old ship.
I never ate there though, they kept dinning us in the ‘Queen’s Grill’, happy days, I’ve never painted for Cunard (or P & O) either, a pity really.
