The rest of the booklet contains full page photos of the QUEENS - the MARY outbound past Manhattan, idle passengers lounging in deck chairs, two men in a wood paneled gym ogling a woman, the smart set at a cocktail party in a suite, flames shooting up from a table side preparation of Crepes Suzette, a jazz band in one of the Verandah Grills, and many more. Several pages have an elegant onion skin cover sheet, and still others are done in trendy half-tone. T
