Queen Elizabeth - First Trip to Greenock

The Cunard cruise liner Queen Elizabeth - on her maiden season - arrived at Greenock for the first time on a very dreich Scottish morning.

She was met by a busy Esplanade with many locals turning out to see and photograph her arrival.

The Svitzer tug Anglegarth greeted her with hoses spraying water - which added to the rain already there.

The Queen Elizabeth is the second largest Cunarder ever built - weighing in at 92,000-tonnes.
