The Queens Of The North Atlantic
For over a quarter of a century the North Atlantic passage was the ultimate in sophisticated travel, the principal link between Europe and America, a way of life for socialites, writers, film stars. And the two great Cunard liners, the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth, the largest passenger ships the world has ever, or will ever see, represented the apogee of that glittering era.
The Queens of the North Atlantic traces with words, photographs, and contemporary drawings the stories of these great ships and their competitors on the North Atlantic run, evoking the atmosphere of the grand saloon and chronicling the social history of the lifestyle that is now just a nostalgic memory.
