CWS: Britannic Interior Fold-Out “One of the world’s largest Motor Liners”

A very nice post war fold out for the WSL Britannic … she would end up being the last ship carrying the WSL colors and flag right up until her retirement. This folds out to stunning full color interior photos filled with amazing rooms of rich veneers and sultry fabrics and artworks. Alas, she was gone by the early 60’s after mechanical troubles.

Hamburg Atlantik Line: SS Hanseatic White Deck Plan

 One of my favorite multi-life ships … the ex Empress of Japan / Empress of Scotland and finally the German Hanseatic. She made summertime crossing but was probably better known for her cruising career. She caught fire as she was preparing for a cruise from NYC and the smoke and fire damage did her in … she was towed across the Atlantic and scrapped.

CWS: MV Britannic Felt Pennant.

This quality felt pennants were common souvenirs in the 50’s for most Cunard (and White Star) ships … I have several of them. The Britannic was the last White Star ship and was retired in the early 1960’s. I’m sure many tears were shed when she went to the breakers after 30 year of reliable service. Good condition with expected ageing

Chandris: Ultimate Australis Brochure **Restocked**

 

The crafty and thrifty Greeks always made good use of secondhand tonnage … and they loved using American ships for their quality construction. The Greeks snapped up the SS America when USL decided to sell her in the mid 1960’s and made a fortune with the immigrant trade to Australia. She had several name and ownership changes and wrecked off the Canary Islands on her way to becoming a hotel in the far east. A sad ending to a spectacular and charming ship. An excellent copy in like new condition and full of spectacular photography that shows off her American Heritage well.

The Only Way to Cross by John Maxtone-Graham 1997 reprint.

 Certainly, one of the best “overview” books that sparked many of today’s middle-aged ship lovers’ interest in the then waning days of Ocean Liners. This book is a staple in most diverse ocean liner libraries. I expect JMG is somewhere in purgatory stuck on the tarmac of a jet liner bound for some warmer destination.

Of course all the big liners are covered Mauretania-Lusitania, Olympic-Titanic-Britannic, QM, Normandie , United States … but also some lesser knowns get attention like the Cap Arcona ,Felix Roussel, and Willem Ruys. The book ends with “tomorrow” a rather nice overview of cruise liners and the cruise industry.

Excellent condition.
