The launching of QE2...
Item # 646276
September 21, 1967
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 21, 1967
* The Queen Elizabeth II is launched
The front page shows two photos related to the launching of QE2, with supporting text which carries onto an inside page. The heading reads: "Queen Launches the Elizabeth II", with subhead: "Name of Cunarder Is a Surprise but Has Precedent." The historic vessel is currently located in Port Rashid, Dubai.
The issue appears to be complete in 84 pages, and is in overall good condition. A paper library stamp was once on the front page, and some evidence of the glue remains, but is minimal (see images).
