FRANCE, Le Roman D'une Ville, Le Havre - 28 May 2012

Three exhibitions are being held in Le Havre during 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of the first trip by the liner FRANCE. At MuMa (Fine Arts Museum André Malraux), the Espace André Graillot and an openair museum of photography along the beach.
"After an inaugural mini-cruise to the Canary Islands, FRANCE left a rain-soaked quayside in Le Havre on 3rd February 1962 for her first transatlantic crossing to New York".

Here are the 30 photos adorning the beach huts. They come from private collections, the archives of the French Lines Association, the family of Commandant Croisile, the first captain of Le FRANCE, & professional photographers. Well worth a visit to see along with refreshment at Le France restaurant. A book of the photos, with additional ones has been published by the tourist board - 28 May 2012
The Cruise Terminal at Le Havre also has some additional photos hanging from the ceiling, along with a lovely model of Liberte
