Abstract
A short promotional film directed at American tourist and travel trade to Europe. It begins with the SS Berengaria leaving New York harbor on route to Cherbourg or Southhamption. The film highlights the features of the ship as well as ship entertainment. The return trip documented is aboard the R.M.S. Mauretania, proclaimed as the “World’s Fastest Ship.” The film was likely sold and bought on board the ship as a souvenir and/or used as a promotional film by Cunard Line agents to entice first and second class passengers to take their ships for their transatlantic voyages.
