    France

    A dramatic interpretation of how the new SS France would appear by Laurence Dunn on the front cover of the April 1957 edition of Boy's Own Paper. At the time he was clearly unaware of the fins that were to be fitted to the funnels, which here look more to be of the Strombos variety

    France plank on frame

    Since I bought a model of the Normandie some weeks ago, when I saw the same maker offer France this week, I just had to have it as a companion, to represent the two finest examples of the art of naval architecture.

    The new France, Mauretania, and Queen Elizabeth, are seen together at their New York piers. Although undated, the France's presence, and Mauretania's black hull date the picture to early 1962. The picture offers a great comparision between the three famous ships.

    The France was a five-masted barque and at the time was the biggest sailing ship in the world when she was launched. She proved to be surprisingly fast....her best outward-bound passage being just 63 days. In 1897, the France suffered a freak accident - she was run down in the dark by the British
