RMS 'Aquitania', c1930. The Aquitania was built by John Brown and Company on the Clyde in Scotland for the Cunard Line. Launched in 1914, she was converted for use as an armed merchant cruiser then a troopship during the First World War. After a refit in 1919 she took up her intended role on the transatlantic route to New York. Although slower than some of her rival liners, Aquitania offered more luxurious accomodation. During the Second World War she again served as a troopship. After the war she was used to transport migrants to Canada before she was scrapped in 1950. Postcard. [C.R. Hoffmann, London]
