Script Details

I remember seeing my first “ship in a bottle” when I was 8 years old.
I was spellbound by the artistry and the craftsmanship…
by the glistening of light through glass,
like sunshine over the open ocean.

I didn't know it at the time,
but that tiny model inspired a lifetime of passion for maritime history.

As I stand here on the decks of the RMS Queen Mary,
Lost in the intricate details of this 21-foot Bassett Lowke builder’s model,
Those feelings of wonderment and awe come rushing back.
I find myself lost in the majesty of this beautiful model.

Craftsmen fashioned this replica from a single log of 200-year-old white mahogany.
The rake of the bow is stunningly graceful,
the “QUEEN MARY” nameplate glistens in the sunlight.

Models like this aren’t just built,
they’re crafted with the precision of an architect
and the imagination of an artist.
They capture the infancy of a ship’s soul.

This model arrived in America aboard the Cunard liner, Britannic, in 1935.
For more than 30 years it was proudly displayed at Cunard’s office,
Just a stone’s throw from Wall Street
and a New York financial district that was built on maritime trade.

In the years that followed, it was almost lost to history.

Now, for the first time in more than 20 years,
the model will be re-united with its glorious namesake in Long Beach, California,
on loan from the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City.

She has crossed a distance of roughly twenty-eight hundred miles,
Not through the Panama Canal or around Cape Horn,
but from the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City...
where our story begins.
