A shot of the Normandie's bow from the front, looking down the slipway. At the bottom of the hull is a rounded protuberance that helps the ship to move faster than most ships of its time.
The Normandie being fitted out near the drydock. Note the two funnels that have been installed (one remains to be installed)
A nice picture of one of the huge funnels. The base of the funnel is split in two and goes down each side, allowing more space for passengers.
The keel of Normandie being built by workers in the shipyard. The ship was over 1,000 feet long.
