Transantlantic Steamer 'Paris'

vintage postcards

The Youtube video is a hoot! It's short and has a VERY funny twist at the end!

The Paris was a 34,369 ton French ocean liner built in 1913 for the Compagnie Transatlantique. The champagne bottle busting maiden voyage was a post World War I event of 1921. That's quite a delay!

The Paris was the first steamer to have square first class stateroom windows as opposed to those unposh portholes:) Telephones were also an added luxury in select rooms. It was a floating bit of France itself!
