French Line: Normandie Charity Program June 1935

rare and cool charity program form the Normandie for June 25th 1935. This would have been on one of her first voyages. The entertainment took place in the Grand Salon (WOW) and a collection was taken up to benefit the French and American seamen’s funds. Comedian Vic Oliver was the master of ceremonies for the evening … events include singers, dancers, magic and other acts. The program which includes a cover and an insert is in great shape with maybe a slight little wrinkle to it .. though I will store it flat and I am sure it can be pressed. Rare indeed!

French Line: Normandie Menu June 1935

A very early menus from the Normandie … form the June date probably her 2nd or 3rd voyage. Of course on the flag ship of the French Line.. the culinary delights were almost limitless! This is a very early menu and it have a few areas of discoloration that could have been from wine served at the diner table in that magnificent dining room… which in my humble opinion was one of the most spectacular sea going rooms ever created. Lovely French maiden on the cover .. rare and cool!

French Line: SS Paris Grand staircase interior framed photograph.

Really cool interior photograph of the Grand Stairway/ embarkation hall of the lovely SS Paris. This room as shown was the later remodeled version, which was more Art deco is flavor and furnishings.  The poor Paris had a few different fires … and Her career was ended by an enormous blaze before WW2 erupted. The gold n silver painted wooden frame has a few nicks and scrapes … but it is a wonderful and unique item! Pretty sure this is a modern print that had been framed … framing dated in1998.
