Only vintage postcards make it possible to travel in time to an era when passenger 'multimodality' followed the taxi-pure pax vessel-underground routine.
The yacht-like motor ship Saga was undoubtedly the prettiest vessel owned by Svenska Lloyd. Completed in 1946, she plied between Gothenburg and London till 1956 (in winter serving also as a cruiser). Sold to France, the ship was renamed as Ville de Bordeaux. In 1964, she headed for the Black Sea as the Bulgarian Nessebar.
After years of gracefully ploughing the seven seas, the vessel met its ultimate fate in 1975. Remarkably, her two companions from the Lloyd's London service, the built in 1929, ugly, angular, and driven by steam turbines Suecia and Britannia, while they ran to the UK capital ten years longer, they met the shipbreakers two years earlier than Saga.
