Stern view of famous liners in New York

Stern view of famous liners in New York

Seen from the stern, are the liners Ile De France, Normandie, Queen Mary, and Aquitania, at their New York piers in late September, 1939. The Rex has sailed on a cruise into neutral waters.

What a great photo!
To me, it's interesting to compare the different hull shapes of those great ships.

Must have been in the very early days of the War, QM is in grey paint the others not yet. Next casualty was Normandie, so far advanced of all the others!

allanc, thanks for your interest in this old picture. You're correct, the Normandie would be lost right where you see her sitting here in just over two years. I've always wondered if the war could have been shortened even more had she survived to do her part in it? Hers was a great loss. If you havn't seen it yet, Das Imperator posted a color photo of these ships seen at at about the same time. Here's the link:

Hi Dave, from what I've read, the Market Diner in Hell's Kitchen opened in the 1962-63 timeframe. I do know that outside of that Kraft brand stuff in a box, the Diner still serves the most famous Mac and Cheese in the country.
