A remarkable glimpse into another era

I draw the reader's attention to a wonderful collection of more than 250 photographs and postcards located here. They document a world cruise on the SS Belgenland in 1925. The Belgenland was a popular ocean liner of the 1920's operated by the Red Star Line. The photographs represent a magnificent glimpse into a world now long gone. A few are below... (click to enlarge).
