Tourist Third Cabin: Steamship Travel in the Interwar Years.
by [Paris in the 20s] Coons, Lorraine; Varias, Alexander.

Publisher Information:
Palgrave, New York: 2003.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. Tourist Third Cabin offers a window into a bygone era, where the technological marvels and floating palaces of modern steamships like the Queen Mary, the Normandie, and Olympic transported a new breed of tourist between Europe and North America. The interwar period saw the birth of mass transatlantic tourism. The authors offer an intimate glimpse of the microcosm of the changing world that was the luxury liner. From crew members to passengers, ship decor to technological innovation, through labor unrest and political upheaval, we see the social world and the business of travel at the dawn of the modern age.
