What better paper to have this in than the New York Times ? Other news of the day throughout. Slight browning around the margins, otherwise in good condition. source: wikipedia: The Normandie was a Frenchocean liner built in Saint-NazaireFrance for Compagnie Gnrale Transatlantique. When launched in 1932 she was the largest and fastest ship in the world, and she maintains the distinction of being the most powerful steam turbo-electric propelled passenger ship ever built. Her novel design features and lavish interiors have led many to consider her the greatest of all ocean liners. Despite this, she was not a commercial success, and relied partly on government subsidy to operate.

In 1942, while being converted to a troopship during World War II, Normandie caught fire, capsized, and sank at the New York Passenger Ship Terminal. Although she was salvaged at great expense, restoration was deemed too costly, and she was scrapped in October 1946.
