9781906608705: DSB Ferries: Ships of the Danish State Railways

DSB (Danske Statsbaner) is Denmark's national rail operator. Until the mid-1990s, it was also the nations largest provider of domestic and international ferry services. Initially, the DSB fleet consisted of train ferries linking Jylland, Fyn and Sjaelland, as well as providing international connections to Sweden and Germany. From the mid-1950s onwards, a succession of large and very efficient car ferries was added in response to growing car ownership. DSBs ferries were of very distinctive design and they also had a unique onboard atmosphere. The last generations were notable for their impressive architecture and for the incorporation of modern art and furnishings, reflecting a paternalistic and social democratic state, providing high quality transport infrastructure for the people. It documents in photographs and advertising memorabilia DSB ferries from the 1900s until the 1990s.
