    Here is a stern view of Italy’s Rex, also taken in Genoa, with the ship dressed overall. This ship IMO was one of the few that didn’t look as good photographed from the stern. It just seems odd that, with the exception of her funnels, her lifeboats were, for the most part, the tallest structures s

    Here's another view of some of histories greatest North Atlantic Liners docked together in New York on 16 September, 1939, just days after the start of World War 2. Only three of these five liners would survive the conflict.

    Rex showing off her speed that won her the Blue Riband, as well as the gorgeous lines that classified her as one of the most beautiful ships ever built. This was apparently taken on approach to New York; note the several open gangway doors on the hull and superstructure.

    New York Harbor, 1936

    This group shot from the air over New York’s super liner piers was taken in 1936. It shows the Europa, Rex, Normandie, Georgic, and Berengaria docked between their scheduled Atlantic voyages and cruises. I’m not sure of the month this was taken, so it’s possible the Queen Mary was already in servi

    The Italian Liner Rex is shown coming back down the Hudson River after turning around upstream in preparation for her docking on September 16, 1939.

    The Aquitania and the Rex are seen together in New York in this image from September, 1939. Aquitania is already painted in a coat of wartime gray, while the Italian liner continued to sail on the Southern route between Italy and New York.

    The picture of the Rex appeared on SN a while back, but the original image showed two US warplanes B-17's flying just above the forward funnel. Someone did some fine photo shopping back in a time before any computer program for doing so even existed. Here is link to the original picture: http://ww
