A Meeting on the Mersey

By Linda Tancs

In 1840 Cunard established the first scheduled service across the Atlantic with a sailing from Liverpool to Halifax and Boston on the ship Britannia.  In celebration of their 175th year of service, Cunard  returns to its spiritual home at the Liverpool waterfront with a spectacular meeting of its three queens–Elizabeth, Mary and Victoria–today.  The original transatlantic crossing will be replicated by Queen Mary 2 in July.
