Safmarine: MS Astor Hard Cover Builders Book.

Pristine builders book for this unique little gal. I can remember about the first time I ever went to a travel agency to obtain “cruise brochures” the Astor was about the newest vessel on the ocean and the agency had a rather large display dedicated to her, and I am sure I have an early brochure for her from that trip. She was built for Safmarine to sail the England to South Africa route that was abandoned by UC/Safmarine almost a decade earlier. Within a year the rout failed and she was sold to the Russians. Pretty detailed book on the ship bow to stern and keel to mast top!

One side is all cutaway … the flip side has b/w interior and “activity aboard” photos. Lots of fun facts about the ship … and a small info section on the famed Hales Trophy! You could not ask for a better overall item about the ship!

Cunard Line: Queen Mary Tile and Thermometer

A very interesting souvenir, though I am perplexed if it dates to the ships Cunard years or if it maybe a HOTEL QM item. Interestingly the painted image is the ship in WW2 with 1000’s of GI’s on her decks and the text clearly states: Cunard White Star Liner Queen Mary. It is the cardboard easel like backside that looks almost too new for it to be from the ships service life … but maybe this was added later? There is also a cut out for this to hang, it is a great item in perfect shape!

Cunard Line: QM cover of Life magazine

Excellent issue of Life magazine with the QM on the cover dated April 19th 1937. I am sure the cover picture is of her maiden arrival in NY … there she is surrounded by tugs and other craft. Passengers and crew seem to all be lining her starboard side, bow and stern areas. It is a great photo. The issue does not have any other reference to the QM … lots of info on Her majesty the real live Queen Mary…. who was still lamenting the loss of her husband George. Page 52 does picture and cover the Normandie’s new propellers … which were instrumental with her recapturing the Hales trophy for the fastest passage across the Atlantic from the QM. A great issue and great shape!

Americian Express: Sailing schedules for Feb-Oct 1957

Nice pamphlet that shows crossings, cruises and some air travels for the Feb-October 1957 period. The year 1957 was the last BIG year of ocean travel … it was all down hill and air travel from then forward. Air travel killed the profits of liner crossings in a few short years and cruising became more and more the standard. Excellent brochure for the twilight of an era. Great reference guide!

United States Lines: SSUS crew quarters cast Aluminum sign

Cast aluminum crew signs for the ship like this seems to be pretty hard to find …. Probably because the other signs were much easier to locate and a little more “glamorous”. This is a cast molded piece .. of course out of lightweight Aluminum. This particular crew cabin would have been certified as being large enough for 21 seamen to occupy (who would have slept in Aluminum standee type bunks). Can you image all those seamen crammed into one room? Pretty rare to find these!

This is a nice little booklet cram packed with lovely one of a kind captioned photos of the QE2 … some are just perfect and one almost has to wonder where Bill gets all of the obscure images. Lovely little book in pristine brand new condition … If your and QE2 lover .. this is a great little reference.

United States Lines: SSUS ALARM bell Relisted

An Alarm Bell removed from the beloved SSUS. Gibbs had an absolute creed for Safety … and this bell was part of the ships emergency warning system.. These Bells were placed throughout the ship and can be seen in various photographs ..Holy Cow is this darn thing loud and HEAVY!! … When these went off, they could wake the dead (watch out for SSUS Zombies!!). Excellent condition! I may have to quote shipping … this is heavy! Use this as a doorbell… and you’ll never miss another caller.
