The 1930s was perhaps the most glamorous and exciting decade for the great liners, highlighted by ferocious international shipbuilding rivalry: Germany's Bremen and Europa, Italy's Rex and Conte Di Savoia, France's Normandie and Britain's Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.
Passengers travelled on some of the most popular liners of all time, such as L'Atlantique, Empress of Britain, Empress of Japan, Queen of Bermuda, President Coolidge, Strathnaver and Strathaird, Orion, Capetown Castle, Oranje, Mauretania, Andes, and many more. Despite the worldwide Depression and a great shift in trading patterns, it was a wonderful decade for shipbuilding and the era of art deco on the high seas - the age of `floating Ginger Rogers'.
