RMS Queen Mary in Trafalgar Square Cunard White Star Line 1936. Wooden Jigsaw by Chad Valley, William McDowell Artist.
Manufactured for Cunard White Star Limited by The Chad Valley Co. 150 pieces, just one piece with surface damage, see third photo, the damaged piece is the the middle on the bow.The flocked pink paper covering the cardboard box is marked. The box has developing splits but is structurally sound. This puzzle was produced by Chad Valley for Cunard White Star in 1936, the year of RMS Queen Mary's maiden voyage. Queen Mary's bow is grazing Drummond's Bank and pointing down Whitehall, her stern is blocking Charing Cross Road, St Martins Lane and the corner entrance to the Chandos Pub. The East wing of the National Gallery and at least one of Nelson's lions have been crushed on the starboard side.
To port, St Martin-in-the-Fields and Strand seem unaffected. Traffic appears to be moving remarkably smoothly everywhere! The artist was William McDowell, a maritime painter and commercial artist.
He worked with Cunard White Star on other projects, including other jigsaws made by Chad Valley. The National Maritime Museum have a copy of this jigsaw. A postcard of this image of Queen Mary in Trafalgar Square was also mass produced, Liverpool's Maritime Museum have one on display. The box measures: 7x 23 x 25 cm appx. All photos show the actual jigsaw for sale.
