Great French Passenger Ships

Great French Passenger Ships

A nostalgic look back over a century of French ocean travel—with several previously unpublished photos France produced some of the finest, most luxurious, best decorated passenger ships of the 20th century. Beginning in 1912 with the four-funnel France, the nostalgic voyage continues with the great and grand transatlantic liners of the French Line, the CGT, including the famous Ile de France, Normandie, and Liberte. Also included are the lesser passenger ships of the French Line. In addition, focus is also given to Compagnie de Navigation Sud-Atlantique, Transports Maritimes, and Chargeurs Reunis operating important South American routes and to Messageries Maritimes operating in Africa, the east, and south Pacific. Packed full of nostalgic reminiscence of great ship days gone by, overall the book explores great liners, mail boats to Africa, and colonial steamers to Saigon. Presenting many previously unpublished images alongside insightful text and anecdotes, this book takes the reader on a nostalgic voyage.
