In this historical photograph of 1930, the Transatlantic Ile de France arrived in New York harbor escorted by two pilot ships. The ship contained all the charm of Paris' 30s. The magnificence of the furniture in the Art Nouveau style, was picked up by all the ocean liners of the Thirties and the following decades. Social life aboard the Ile de France was a draw to the European aristocracy and the rich American bourgeoisie. From stem to stern it breathed carefree atmosphere in style twenties. gala evenings, the bar always supplied alcohol (bypassing the American Prohibition) were forgetting their travelers were making a journey to a new world in search of a better life.
