Lovely several page article w/ photos on one of my favorite Great Lakes companies ..the GBL. There twin sisters The North American and South American were fixtures on the lakes till the mid 1960’s .. the GBL also operated the Alabama in the 40’s .. and used her as a parts ship for the other 2 boats until their demise. Once of my biggest regrets was not making time to visit the South American in the early 1990’s before she was finally scrapped.
Dubbed The Factual Story of a Great Ship” .. a nice souvenir booklet done for the Mary early in her hotel career in Long Beach. Certainly dated to the 70’s …. The ship has been through a few owners since then … including Disney. A good quick reference guide to her service history and early LB years.
Nice little photo portfolio for the now defunct Dolphin cruise line. Good condition and great for any ship photos.
Certainly the best brochure ever done for the mighty SS United States … is this lovely example by Lester Beal. Lester did this brochure for the SSUS when she introduced (he also did one for the America) The SSUS brochure was filed with color renderings of public rooms and cabins … and many of these same rendering appeared in advertisements for the ship. The centerfold opens to a wonderful starboard profile one in Lester’s 50’s modern graphics . Just a lovely item in great shape with a tiny little yellowing to the paper. Don’t miss this one .. these usually sell pretty quickly.
Certainly the best brochure ever done for the lovely America .. . is this lovely example by Lester Beal. Lester did this brochure for the America at the same time the SSUS was introduced .. so each ship would have a premium “companion” brochure … the big difference was the America brochure is full of photos ( where as the SSUS brochure was filed with color renderings). The centerfold opens to a wonderful starboard profile of the America done in Lester’s 50’s modern graphics . Just a lovely item in great shape with a tiny little yellowing to the paper. Don’t miss this one .. these usually sell pretty quickly.
Excellent copy of the famous book done in the mid 1990s by author James Steele. This book is exceptionally well written and loaded with excellent photos, graphics and lovely artwork. This is printed on super high quality paper and is hardbound. A must have for any Queen Mary Lover … one of my favorite newer books on the Mary.
Nice log card for voyage 331 in 1966. Interestingly, Ridington was in charge for this voyage … the Commodore must have needed some time off. Good condition with minimum wear. Looks ,like some rougher seas on several of the days brought her average speed to be 29.58 knots.
An unusual view of the Dutch darling … probably one of the most perfect liners of all time … sailing through a darkened night. The view shows somewhat rough and heavy seas .. but the beautiful gal is steaming onward. The wonderful framed print come from the Peter Knego collection.
I will have to quote shipping … the site calculator will not be accurate.
