The Art Deco era was also the golden age of travel, when ocean liners were the apotheosis of style and technology. Often romanticised in design, those sophisticated days at sea are currently being celebrated until October 9, 2017 at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA, in the exhibition Ocean Liners: Glamour, Speed, and Style before a similarly titled exhibition, Ocean Liners: Speed & Style opens at London's Victoria & Albert Museum in early 2018.
