DSB (Danske Statsbaner) is Denmark’s national rail operator. Until the mid-1990s, it was also the nation’s 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. DSB’s ferries were of very distinctive design and they also had a unique on-board 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.
