European passenger liners jam New York's water front in February, 1939. Four of the five largest would be lost within the next five years.

I'll leave it to the pros to figure out the two this side of Monarch of Bermuda. Amazing how puny DeGrasse looks next to Normandie and sure shows why some thought it a bit pretentious to lump Columbus in with Bremen and Europa as a "trio".

jaguar06, good call on the Hamburg of 1925, the second one down from the Monarch, is an unidentified freighter, and the one nearest the Monarch, is another Furness liner called Fort Townsend. According to the caption attached to the original picture, all of these vessels together represent a total of 356,000 tons of shipping.
