The RMS Queen Mary, nearing the end of her career, cruises into New York Harbor past Lady Liberty.  The Mary herself was a familiar symbol of liberty, having served as a troop transport during World War II.  After the war, she was refitted for passenger service, and until the era of jet travel forced her into retirement in 1967, she and her sister ship, the Elizabeth, served as the Queens of transatlantic travel.
