Star Item
  • Description

    Full title reads: "Darlington. Another record for Britain! Huge stern frame - World's largest casting - weighing hundreds of tons for new 73,000-ton Cunarder."

    Darlington, County Durham.

    A huge piece of cast iron is lifted and moved in foundry. Shots of engineers check to see it will fit in place.

    More shots of huge pieces of cast iron in yard. People are looking at the parts for the new ship.

    Nice shots of a small tank engine - steam train - called 'Unity' pulling on of the huge castings along the track in the foundry.

    Good shots of model of the liner being tested in water tank showing how she will behave at sea.

    N.B. The ship being built - the 534 - was later to be named 'Queen Mary'.
