Directly from the onboard gift shop … a small charm for the RMS Edinburgh Castle. Really nice enamel ship crest. Looks like this may have been part of a keychain … but it would be great as a medallion on a neckless.
Directly from the onboard gift shop … and letter opener from the RMS Pretoria Castle. Really nice enamel ship crest crest and the blade looks hardly to have been used. Dr. Livingston never had such finery!

I love these packets! Assembled and handed out at the end of a 1979 Caribbean cruise, this containes 8 daily programs and 13 menus! The covers have some bumped edges … but the contents are supreme! She was enjoying her second life … almost forgotten were the gay French Line Flandre years!

She helped revive Italian Lines service after WW2 and then survived well into the decade of the 60’s … I would have loved to see those Baroque interiors!

Giant post card for the George Sharp designed Aquarama. she was the “oceanliner” of the great lakes durning the 50’s and 60’s. She was just towed to turkey for scrapping about 2 years ago after languishing at several locations on the Great Lakes for the past 3 decades. Mint and Unused
These are just about the best deckplans you can find for the QOB. This starts out as 8.5 x 11 and folds out to have 8 double sided sections. The huge plans cover almost 12 of these sections and 2 sections are devoted to the covers (great QOB image shown in a silvery hull) and 2 sections are devoted to QOB text! You can beat this baby!
A wonderfully thick brochure booklet advertising the 1926/27 ATW cruise for the EOS the and a 1926/27 Mediterranean cruise for the Empress Of France. Both started at NYC: The EOS steamed 28,400 miles and ended back in NYC 55 days later, The EOF went 10.937 and finished in Southampton after 33 days. There are 2 pages dedicated to each stop … one page being text and one being a portrait of a “citizen” at each exotic port of call. The ATW ports range from Algiers to Venice. Some minor edge wear and some age spots, but a beautiful brochure indeed!

Nice folding deckplan from the early 60s for the Hanseatic. She was a very popular ship … till an engine room fire in NYC harbor cut her life short. She was quickly towed back to German and scrapped. The Zim line Shalom was quickly purchased as her replacement. Excellent condition w/ agency stamp.

Last true beauty for the Home lines! These plastic pin trays were very popular mementos in the 60’s and 70’s! There are in excellent contioion … probably bought onboard and put in a drawer for 30 years and forgotten. I have just heard the Oceanic is now destined for the scrappers =(.
