The painting depicts the New York Passenger Ship Terminal between West 46th and West 54th street, known to many as Luxury Liner Row. Artist Robert Lloyd notes: “These piers represented the epitome of transatlantic passenger travel, and nowhere else in the world would it have been possible to see such a meeting of the great liners.”
Shown in the artwork are Cunard's Media, Caronia, Mauretania and Queen Mary; the French Line’s Liberte, with engines started and her whistle blowing, and the Italian Line’s Leonardo da Vinci, maneuvering into the berth alongside the SS America. Behind the SS America are the huge funnels of America's Flagship, the SS United States. She towers above all else, surely a sight to behold and instantly recognizable. Finally, we see the Italian Line’s Saturnia approaching her berth, with the twin stacks of American Export Lines’ SS Independence just visible through the smoke and haze.
