French Line Print

Availability: In stock

A print of French Line/Southampton to New York, 1935, by an unknown designer.

Launched in 1935, the SS Normandie was one of the most elegant ships ever to sail. Its interiors exemplified the finest French craftsmanship of the era, reflecting the prevailing Art Deco style. It also captured the Blue Riband—an award allocated for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic by a passenger ship—on its maiden voyage, making it the most expedient and efficient liner of its time. The original poster is based on one of the many aerial photographs taken on June 3, 1935, of the Normandie sailing up the Hudson River along Manhattan’s West Side to its berth at Pier 88 at 55th Street. In celebration of its much-heralded arrival, it was accompanied by tugboats and followed by steamers, ferries, and other smaller vessels.

Measures 17 x 11 inches. Ships rolled.
