That's Cunard's Franconia, originally built as Ivernia in 1955. These pix are of the interior as it was being scrapped last year in Alang. So sad!

I urge all of you who have a love for mid-century to donate to two foundations that are trying to save our beloved SS United States. This is one of the last vintage ocean liners left in the world, especially since the Norway (ex-France) was recently sent for scrap. The SS United States is a national treasure that is in dire need of support for its restoration, and prevention of scrapping!!
