Overview

The Unseen Aquitania: The Ship in Rare Illustrations by J. Kent Layton


RMS Aquitania was in service for decades, and was very much beloved. The third in Cunard Line's "grand trio" of express liners, running mate of the lost Lusitania and the legendary Mauretania (1907), Aquitania was the last surviving four-funnelled ocean liner. Aquitania was pressed into service during both world wars and was one of the longest serving passenger liners of the 20th century. She was also one of the most elegant, nicknamed the "ship beautiful." This book offers the most evocative and exciting collection of imagery relating to this historic vessel ever shown.
