“A NEVER-TO-BE-REPEATED VIEW OF NEW YORK’S SKYLINE. This extraordinary panorama of New York’s uptown skyline, taken from the high cliffs at Weehawken, N. J., is exceptional in many ways. … In the foreground, tied up at Manhattan docks are five huge transatlantic liners that never will be seen together again. Left to right, the ROMA, the QUEEN MARY, the NORMANDIE, and both at one dock, the ÎLE DE FRANCE and the CHAMPLAIN.” N-10
