The 83, 000 ton Cunard-White Star Liner Queen Elizabeth cast off her moorings

The 83, 000 ton Cunard-White Star Liner "Queen Elizabeth" cast off her moorings and Southampton and slid slowly from her berth to begin her maiden passenger voyage to New York. A great crowd on the quayside gave the ship a rousing send off, other vessels at Southampton Water sounded their sirens in farewell as she gathered speed. Overhead half a dozen aircraft circled the "Q.E.", agleam in her new paint, as she steamed down the Solent to show the world the determination of Britain to hold pride of place in luxurious high-speed ocean travel.
Picture shows crowds watching at Southampton as "Queen Elizabeth" leaves her berth on her maiden passenger voyage across the Atlantic.
16 October 1946

Barrels for the Shetland catch of herring being unloaded at Lerwick, 1949

Barrels for the Shetland catch of herring being unloaded at Lerwick, 1949.
Klondyking for fresh herring has begun in the Shetlands.
For two weeks all Shetland Herring Boats (from Lerwick and Scalioway) can land unlimitedcatches of fish. As against the limited landings of Scottish fishing ports these fishermen get their ?3 per cran. The Scottish ports, however, witht heir limited lands recieve 89/10d per cran - which means that generally the Shetland fisherman gets less for his work unless he lands enormous catches.
A cran is about 1500/1600 fish - the number getting smaller as the season advances Four baskets of boxes make up a cran.
Klondyking is the name given to the Shetlanders who fish unrestricted for the first two weeks. It comes fromt he Gold Rush days when it was every man for himself.
