D'Accord


From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on this day in 1935:

Agreement on Sailings of New Ships Ratified

An agreement between the Cunard White Star Line and the French Line in respect to the sailings of the Queen Mary and the Normandie, new flagships of the respective fleets, is reported to have been ratified. The joint schedule will be issued when the Queen Mary enters the North Atlantic service. The Normandie makes her maiden voyage from Havre for New York May 29.
