France joined the Anglo-German competition to provide the fastest, most luxurious passage across the Atlantic when it launched the France in 1912. A series of successively larger and grander liners followed including the Ile de France and the Normandie. This examination of French liners is illustrated with posters, paintings, photos of the vessels and their stylish interiors, and ephemera from the heyday of French sea travel between the 1920s and the 1960s.
