Twilight Of An EraStreaming Video - 2013
Luxury was defined in the early part of the 20th century by superliners. This classic video takes viewers on a five-day journey aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2, the last superliner ever built. Before the days of jet travel, magnificent ocean liners such as the Queen Mary and the Normandie reigned over the Atlantic, setting standards of taste, luxury, and efficiency. Significant for their engineering and nautical ingenuity, these vessels also transported the wealthy and famous, immigrants seeking new lives in the land of opportunity, and soldiers during wartime before being made obsolete by air travel in the mid-1960s. Experience life aboard the last of the North Atlantic liners in a nostalgic retrospective.
