This modern reproduction postcard features a great photograph of the French Ocean Liner S. S. Normandie the largest and fastest ship of her day. She is seen here at Pier 88 in New York City.

The original photograph was taken in 1936 by the Byron Company.

The Normandie made over 130 crossings of the Atlantic from Le Havre, France to New York before she was seized by the American government during World War II.

In 1942 during the process of converting the liner to a troop ship she caught fire. Restoration of the ship was deemed to costly and she was sold for scrap in 1946.
