R. DÉVIGNES (DATES UNKNOWN) WASHINGTON MANHATTAN / UNITED STATES LINES. Circa 1930s. 39x24 1/4 inches, 99x61 1/2 cm. "La Photolith," Paris. Condition A- / B+: minor repaired tears at edges, slightly into image; minor restored losses at edges; creases and minor abrasions in margins and image; small foxing spot in lower text box; repaired pin holes in corners. Matted and framed. Not only two important American cities, Manhattan and Washington here refer to two sister ships serving the United States Lines, launched in 1932 and 1933 respectively. Here, the city's impressive skyscrapers, bathed in the shadows of sunset, appear small in comparison to the liner gracefully steaming out of New York Harbor. Weallans p. 142.
