Georgian Bay Line: SS South American writing paper and envelope

 Two great little writing sheets and one envelope from onboard the SS South American. These South spent the better part of the 20th century cruising the great lakes before being retired in the mid 60’s. Oh .. the lost and romantic art of writing letters! In good shape .. though need to be pressed to clean up the minor edge bumps.

Cunard Line: QE2 “Ships Have Been Boring Long Enough” Pre maiden brochure. Repriced

A nice copy of the famous brochure completed for the new QE2. This contains 31 pages of introductory info about all aspects of the ship including her maiden voyage and initial cruise schedule. There is a lovely cut away of the vessel and a great profile too. Lots of tids and bits of trivia about the ship … like the funnel design, mast, propellers etc etc. 2 pages are dedicated to “ship shapes” and different design elements of the ship .. Love the pictures of Snowflake china! The cover has some scuffs and age spots but the brochure is overall great condition and is a must have for the QE2 lover.

Cunard Line: Onboard Cunard Shopping List

Great 2 part printed “shopping list”, the first part covers all general items available: the second part describes items available on specific ships. Interestingly, Tri-ang toys and ship models were offered on the Mary, and not the other ships. You could buy china an glassware on the Caronia, but interestingly not perfume ..seems odd! No date, but from the graphics and the Ford Consul shown in the adverts.. I’d date this to the late 50’s or early 60’s.

Cunard Line: Passage rate folder 1950

PR folder released August 15th 1950. Cunard’s “A fleet” sure would have been raking in the post war cash and probably sailing close to capacity where this was printed. The Samaria had been downgraded to one class service and the folder also covers Donaldson Atlantic Lines one class ships: SS Laurentia and SS Lismoria. Great shape and informative!

Cunard White Star Line: Georgic General arrangement Plans for decks A-B-C-D.

WOW … wonderful deck arrangement plans for the CWS MV Georgic stamped and dated in march 1944. These cover the A-B-C-D decks for the ship when she was rebuilt after her wartime bombing. The plans are nicely detailed and contain some hand written notes. There is color coding and notes on each deck detailing the ventilation systems. The officers sure had a little more privacy … they occupied older cabins, white the troops stayed in large dormitory areas in standee bunk 3 high. This plan is in terrific shape with just a few browning areas. The picture only shows about 1/2 of the plan … it’s pretty big and hard to photograph!

Chandris Lines: Silver plated Knife and Fork set

Lovely dainty silver plated knife and fork set from a Chandris ship. The knife has “Chandris Lines” etched on the blade beside the lovely X flag symbol, while the fork has the X flag symbol stamped below the tines. Made by Sheffield of England, these need a good polishing. I have no idea what ship .. but I’m guessing an older vessel like the Britanis, Ellinis or maybe the lovely Australis.
