The ocean liner Normandie by G. H. Davis
The new giant French ocean liner which made a record Atlantic crossing in four days, three hours: the "Normandie" - a diagrammatic drawing of her interior construction by G. H. Davis in the Illustrated London News. Also shown are comparisons with Big Ben and the National Gallery to get some sense of the ship's enormous size. Also the turbo-electric machinery which was, according to this illustration, 'sufficiently powerful to drive the whole of the underground railway system of London during rush hours.' In the top right are photographs showing the foldaway beds in first class cabins. Date: 1935
