2 Ile de France baggage tags that have been stuck back to back. One for Mrs. Wm. Rosenthal and one for Misses Jan and Sandy Handmaker … interesting both parties occupying cabin 40.

One of Billy Milly’s excellent overview books… filled with photos and info on the greatest American passenger ships. This was an Ex library book and discarded from the Pulaski, Va Library. A great book and priced accordingly.
The Super cool silver Brochure for the lovely sister ships is one of my favorites of all time. It is well designed with embossing on the covers, packed with excellent photos and graphics and nicely covering each ship. Almost ever page has a “bookmark” divider with captions on each ship for the corresponding photo. It is quite lovely and printed in 1932. Tucked into the back is a menu page from the Bremen dated 1934.
This would have been the first time the Norway left the Caribbean in 4 years to cross the Atlantic. It was clever scheme to position the ship for special voyages around her first refit at Meyer-Werft. Line New brochure with deck plans.

Dated September 1st 1963 the exquisite cuisine was stated in both French and English. The gorgeous cover still life was by Michel Ciry and prominent artist of the day. The date would have been would have been just about a year after her Maiden Voyage.
It would have been an honor to sit at the captains table at anytime during the ships 10th ATW cruise. This menu for dinner at the captains table is dated 2-20.1970. The menu was for Mrs JA Nork and was signed by Captain EGA Heymans.
The QE2 is being prepared for launch in the press photo. The scaffolding for the platform of the launching ceremony is well underway and the Queen is scheduled for September 20th. She would be the last Great liner built at John Browns Clydebank Yard.
Interesting French Press photo of the recently launched Shalom while she was fitting out. The text is in French … so I don’t know exactly what is being said other than she was a product of the famous Chantiers de la Atlantique yard … the largest liner built there since the SS France.
A lovely photo showing the QE settling into her new retirement home in PE, Florida. As we know the expectations on this being successful did not materialize and she would be sold again to CY Tung.
