Maxims Casino Town Quay And Ventura
Photograph - Photograph
This is the rooftop of Town Quay Southampton with the cruise ship Ventura moored behind. When the Quay was built the idea of a ship as huge as Ventura wasn't even a dream.
The two storey building, former harbour office, was erected in 1925 to replace an earlier construction. A central tower with a cupola topped by an iron weather vane featuring a ship surmounting a globe, with the motto: "Janua Maris" ("Gateway to the Sea") is a welcome sight to ships coming into dock at the port. The octagonal tower has clocks on four faces and elaborate console brackets.
The building is now owned by the Genting Group and trades as "Maxim's Casino".
The cruise ship Ventura officially entered service in April 2008 and was christened by Dame Helen Mirren prior to her maiden cruise to the Mediterranean Sea.
