French Line CGT Southampton to New York Express Luxury Service Normandie, 1936 ca.

Artist Unknown poster: French Line CGT Southampton to New York Express Luxury Service Normandie

This birds-eye view of the Normandie before the New York skyline dramatically reveals the scale of the French ship. More than 1000 feet long, it rivaled the city's tallest skyscrapers. The Normandie was the first liner to break 30 knots on the Atlantic voyage, and is still considered the most perfect embodiment of art and science in an ocean liner.
