A hand-written cost estimate for the new Cunard “proposed Atlantic liner” from December 6, 1910, that exhaustively lists the estimated costs of building and installing Aquitania’s proposed engine plant. The estimate is nearly half a million pounds, which tots up to just about a third of Cunard’s cost to build the ship. I wonder how accurate this estimate turned out to be nearly three and a half years later. A fascinating document and an important one for one of the most influential ships of the 20th century. One seam has a separated for about 3”. See photos for condition.
