Steamship Stories – Dining on the Baltimore Mail Line

Baltimore Mail Line brochure (c. 1930)
Description of the dining saloon on the Baltimore Mail Line

The dining saloon — light, airy, with snowy linen, gleaming glass and silverware, deft, unhurried service, famous food. And again spaciousness—every passenger has his place at a table and all can be seated at one time. Hence you can choose any time you wish for dining during meal hours.
