Queen Mary ship | Long Beach, CA


The Queen Mary ship is an icon of the Southern California coastline and a beloved historical landmark in Long Beach.  Between 1936 and 1967, the Queen Mary was considered the most beautiful and stately ship in the world. It was called “The Ship of Beautiful Woods” because of the spectacular woodwork created from the rarest trees in the British Empire. In 1967, it was sold to Long Beach and made her last journey from Southampton (UK).

The Queen Mary was converted for military use during World War II for the Allies. It earned the nickname Gray Ghost for its naval camouflage.
