The ocean liner Normandie by G. H. Davis Featured Print

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

The swimming pool on board the Berengaria Featured Print

The swimming pool on board the Berengaria

A "Bath Club" at Sea: the modern liner's land-like buildings. Roman luxury aboard a giant liner crossing the Atlantic: a swimming bath modelled on that of Pompeii built of tiles and marble, with massive pillars and a glass roof. The swimming pool on board the Cunard ocean liner, Berengaria measuring 64 feet long by 41 feet wide, constructed of tiles and marble with mosaic work and fittings of bronze. Round the sides is a colonnade of massive pillars, supporting a glass roof which rises to the height of three decks above the bottom of the tank. Over the dressing rooms was a wide, upper gallery for spectators. A continuous cascade of fresh water entered the pool from a cascade at one end. The depth was graduated and 9 feet at its deepest. The ILN comments on the air of modern liners being akin to a palatial building on land and likens the pool to a similar one on board the White Star liner Majestic. Date: 1922
