Legendary leviathan. Like an albatross, it seemed nearly impossible that it could even take off, skimming waves at increasing speed, revving up its four engines. Inside staterooms, dining area, bunk beds. Boarding from a dock or using a ship’s tender, it was the 1930’s epitome of class. This was leisure travel and luxury at the same time, never to come back in that measure.
