On the old Queen Juliana ferry-boat from Harwich to Hook van Holland, traditional 1920s luxury still trumped 60s economy, which was evident both at a luxurious restaurant and in the office of the purser. The man himself, gently smiling like an urbane Dutch bishop, was seated behind a monstrous desk. At his back to hold keys, mail, fresh newspapers, menus, and the occasional telegram brought in by a messenger boy from the vessel’s radio room. Before retiring to our 2-berth luxury cabin (having consumed delicious entrecotes and a fragrant Beaujolais-Villages) we checked out the purser’s cabinet again, which had definitely taken our fancy! Three wonderful bookcases for storing novels? Hats and handbags? Gloves and travel gear? Newspapers and keys? Your choice. And with three configurations at hand, one will make the fit!
