This nighttime image of the Normandie offers a very different experience from Cassandre's poster of the same title—here, she quietly glides away from the glimmer of New York City. With six decks of cabin lights reflecting in the water, there is an element of romance combined with the usual magnificence of the ship. After the Cunard Line’s Queen Mary beat the Normandie’s speed records in August of 1938, French Line began promoting her as “the world’s most perfect ship” rather than the fastest. Such a description could not be better expressed than in this image—and this version has exceedingly fresh colors!
