RMS Queen Mary Final Inventory Report

For you maritime history fans, the City of Long Beach has publicly released their final inventory report of the RMS Queen Mary that consists over 4,700 "original fine and decorative arts" still aboard the vessel docked at Long Beach. For those who have visited the ship in Long Beach, you already know that most of the interior furnishings and fittings have been sold off so this focus is on preserving what is left.

Aside from the inventory list, you'll find an excellent history on the QM & her build with the primary focus on her interior design and construction, including the use of new, "modern" materials like Linoleum, Formica and nickel steel that was were used throughout. Another interesting section is devoted to biographies of the noted architects, artists and designers who created the ship's interior.

Unless you have a few cartons of printer paper & cartridges to spare, you will want to read this on your monitor since the report comes to a whopping 2,676 pages in total.

You can view & download the report at:

Got a message that said "operation or data is too complex for Adobe to download. " Never saw that before.
