Have you been spring cleaning your home this weekend? How would you like to try spring cleaning an Empress steamship?
This month's featured photograph depicts the second Empress of Britain being tugged for her "spring cleaning" in Southampton, England. This photograph was taken in May of 1932. According to the photographer, this cleaning was an annual affair, so this is probably only the first or second cleaning- she was launched in July 1930.
