SS Silverstar deckplan

Cute little deckplan … for the puggy little Silverstar. She started life in the Military … and after WW2 was converted into a little cruise ship operating off the east coast of the US. She was pretty utilitarian and somewhat successful in her own way. A note tells us Mom stayed in cabin 42. The Silverstar was such an odd duck…You do not see much for her.

Beau Voyage book by JM Brinnin

Beau Voyage by JM Brinnin : Awesome photographic record of North Atlantic Liners from Brinnin in the mid 1970’s. From the images of the QM’s anchor chains laid out and ready for installation on page 20 , to the riveting photograph of passengers descending the staircase of the Ile de France into the post war dining room ( note the light fixtures reflected in the mirror )… the B/W images in this book do not disappoint … and quite a few are fairly uncommon in publication. The text is pretty engaging too. Great shape with a few minor tears to the dust jacket. 271 pages

Sea Classics Magazine April /May 1985

These are always a treat … of course the best article in the one is written by FOB .. and is titled ” the seven Lives of the Manhattan and Washington”. Frank’s delight always shows in writing and the11ish page article just glows for these little ladies. Born out of the depression, they sailed in the 30’s and saw heavy war use in the 40’s. After the war, there was some (but little austerity use).. and both ships spent most of their time remaining time slowly rusting in the reserve fleet. The magazine does have some page crinkling.

American Export Lines: SS Atlantic ash/pin tray 4 pack.

4 cute little glass trays packed nicely in thier orginial souvenir box. The Atlantic sure isn’t a very popular liner … she never have the fanfare of the larger ships; but she did survive a very long time as the SS Universe. She ended her days on the beaches of India becoming recycled resources for the local economy.

The Delta Queen Steamboat Company: “save the queens” plate

Oh if only these 3 were still plying the American inland waters! Only the Americian Queen is in active service today (under different owners). The DQ herself is currently a B&B type hotel … and the MQ was deemed so full of mold that she is slowly being scrapped. Buying this plate was a way to support saving these ladies way before thier final demise! Great condition!

Cunard: Ivernia Mechanical Float Pencil

Oh, probably Peter Kengo is the only person that can tell you exactly hom much I loved the little Ivernia/ Franconia. She was such a special little Canadian lady. Great floaty mechanical pencil … of course a gift shop item. I don’t think the little “Ivy” floats anymore (needs oil refilled)… but all else is excellent w/ lead! Orginial box and instruction sheet.

Cunard Line: Aquitania WW2 framed photo

Nice WW2 picture of the Aquitania. From 1914, she survived both wars and gave the company spectacular 4 funneled service. She was also the last 4 funneled ship … and after hard use and minimum post WW2 austerity refurbishment.. went to the scrappers in 1950. I think this is a modern “nostalgic” photo.

Canadian Pacific: Empress of Scotland: hanging postcard

Nice super heavy stock portrait card for the EOS …. shown in Liverpool harbor. This was probably a gift shop item available for onboard purchase. The EOJ>EOS> Hanseatic was one of may favorite ships. A smelly smokey fire in NY harbor sent her to the scrappers. This card does have an unfortunate crease line  … its only flaw!

Cunard Line: QM “faucet on a plaque” by Darcy

A fun item from Gene Darcy and his “Stoires of the Queens” traveling store. Darcy bought all sorts of items from scrapped ships … and the made plaques, lamps, bookends at the like. He also offered items that were not authentic .. but this faucet is certainly not one of those items. Many of the cabins and loos aboard QM still have these as working faucets today! I know a guy in Texas that has 100s of these things … I firmly believe he is trying to reassemble each ship bit by bit!
