RMS Mauretania

There were two ships named RMS Mauretania, this is the second one, completed in 1939.  It was the first ship built for the Cunard White Star Line (after the merger of the Cunard and White Star lines).  

These photos are in an album dating from 1939 (on into the 1940s), and so I'm presuming that the 'author' of the album is indeed referring to the maiden voyage in 1939.

This last picture is a zoomed in version of the first photo.
