From her exquisite Grand Lobby to her Royal Court Theatre (complete with box seating), this sumptuous photographic record takes the reader on a journey through the public rooms of this stately ship Queen Victoria was the first in a new breed of Cunard Ships--her unique design, based on the Vista Class hull of Carnival Corporation, is strengthened and enhanced to give her the ability to cross the North Atlantic Ocean. This hybrid of ocean liner and cruise ship represents a new era for the 170-year-old Cunard Line, introducing one of the most luxurious ships to carry the Golden Lion. Built by Fincantieri and introduced into service in late 2007, Queen Victoria’s reign is young; however, she has had a notable career with royal engagements, tandem Atlantic crossings, and Gala-World Cruises where she has been welcomed internationally with open arms. This photographic journey around the modern yet stately Queen Victoria is full of quirky and amusing anecdotes and stories looking back over the life of QV. Each room is described in light narrative with complementing photographs to create a lasting memento of a voyage aboard Cunard’s newest monarch.

150 years ago travelling with a camera was both a novelty and an enormous challenge. The intrepid photographers who took their cameras to remote parts of the world brought back images which amazed their peers. Photographer and historian John Hannavy has recreated some of their epic journeys: exploring the Nile from Cairo to Abu Simbel along the route Francis Frith followed between 1856 and 1859; exploring China and Cyprus as John Thomson did between 1863 and 1878.

This new history reveals the previously untold story of why and how trains have been used to transport the coffins of the dead, enabling their burial in a place of significance to the bereaved. From Royalty, aristocrats and other VIPs (including Sir Winston Churchill and the Unknown Soldier) to accident victims and ordinary people, this book explores the way in which these people made their final journey by train before being laid to rest. Profusely illustrated with many images, some never previously published, Nicholas Wheatley’s work details how the mainline railways carried out this important yet often hidden work, from the Victorian age to the 1980s. The continuation of ceremonial funeral transport on many heritage railways brings the story up to the present day.
