NORMANDIE: 1935 - Famed isometric deck plan from 1937

Product Description

French Line: I get goose bumps looking at this item - the famed, sixteen-page NORMANDIE isometric plan from 1937. The lithography is magnificent. It covers the eight decks for First Class, although in the parlance of the times, it is called Cabin Class.

The plan unfolds to 45" and starts with Sun Deck. Besides a Children's Playroom, Sun Deck was the domain of the uber-suites, Trouville and Deauville. Movie stars and dictators booked these warrens of bedrooms, servants' rooms, private dining rooms, lounges, verandahs, and multiple private baths.

Boat Deck shows the ultra-chic Grill Room and the head of the famed Grand Stairway. I never noticed before a private bar on the port side. To have enjoyed a sunset cocktail with friends in that space!

The most famous deck on this most famous of ships would be Promenade. Here was that unobstructed vista that stretched down from the Grand Stairway, through the Smoking Room, Grand Lounge, Gallery, and Grand Hall, to the gates of the Theatre. It was and remains the most famous vista in all of liner-dom. The deck ended with the bow-facing Winter Garden where song birds serenaded passengers.

Main Deck was all cabins anchored by six deluxe suites midships. One pleasure of an isometric plan was that prospective passengers could easily imagine the space and furniture lay-out in each cabin. How I would have loved to browse through the Novelty Shop and Book Shop located on the Main Deck Purser's Square!

A and B decks were all accommodations, except for the Chapel fitted off the Foyer on B. The center space on each deck was hollowed out, foreshadowing the grandeur to come.

For stretching through the center of C Deck and rising up through A and B decks was the enormous Main Dining Room, a shimmering hall of gold and crystal. A grand descent led past two cloakrooms and into the room, ensuring a dramatic entrance for all grande dames. Two-hundred and thirty tables, not including the Commandant's ten-seat table in the center, were squeezed into the space. The table numbers are marked on the plan, beginning with numbers one and two on the landing half-way down the grand descent. They seem like after-thoughts. Eight private dining rooms lined the side walls.

As they say on late-night infomercials, "but wait, there's more." On D Deck forward was the famed Swimming Pool, surrounded by massage and changing rooms, plus the requisite horseshoe bar.

The plan is in very good condition.
