Mystery Illustration 95

What type of craft was host to these scenes? Luxury railroad car perhaps? Ocean liner? What's your guess?

The answer is here.

Or after the jump.

I'm guessing dirigible, maybe even the Hindenburg.

Airship / zeppelin. Easy, shmeasy. The windows (portlights?) are angled downward.

Be careful of the H2 while you're cooking, Helmut.

I wonder if they had a smoking section on the Hindenburg.

When I saw that kitchen, I knew it was one of zeppelins. Even railroads had more generous accommodations for the cooks.

Got it in one.

And really, we should bring them back. Sure, they're not fast, and they're not convenient. Jumbo jets they're not. Thank heavens! Nah, think of them, rather, like a better alternative to cruise ships.
Luxury? Check. Leisure? Check. Seeing foreign places? Check - ish, on a cruise: hope you like package tours. Good service? Check. Comfort of travel? Check, guaranteed, on the airship - and on the Cunarder, do you feel lucky, punk?

I can't think of a single aspect in which airship holidays would be worse than a cruise. Even the chance of catching noro virus must be lower.
