Star Item
  • Description

    Birkenhead, Merseyside.

    Several shots of the new liner ship Mauretania held on the slipway by scaffolding. Men are seen working on the final stages of the new ship. Commentator says it will be launched by the end of the month and will be bigger than the old Mauretania, "... and comfortable, and safe".

    Followed by mute section of film showing similar construction shots, plus different shot of a huge girder (?) on a truck on its way to the ship.

    Alternative spelling - Mauritania.
