Queen Elizabeth: Nice little plain glass sorbet dish that was part of her table service that was sold off during the brief period that she was open for tourists in Florida. Luckily, most of the items onboard were for sale … so furniture and fittings did make their way off her before she departed for Hong Kong and her final demise.
Conquest of the Atlantic booklets. These were great little brochures that highlighted the fleet and Cunard’s history. These were passed out by the 1000’s! Excellent condition.
Queen Mary: Here is a great souvenir booklet that was done for her inaugural season. 1000’s lined the dock to pay to see Britain’s newest wonder ship when she first arrived to the US in 1936. There is some bumping to the covers.
Queen Elizabeth: An amazing Launch brochure for the Lizzy. Cunard and the Clydeside engineers had made great strides in ship design since the Mary (which meant she required fewer funnels and boilers etc). Maybe this is why the Lizzy never had the same allure as the Mary? Contains several fold outs and a marvelous golden centerfold. This is oversized and in good condition … though the edges of the cover are a little brittle and bumped.
White Star Line: Map of Europe. These were given out to passengers showing how to get to and from WSL locations throughout Europe. What makes this amazing is the reverse side which shows liners of the IMM fleet. The Olympic is shown and so is her new sister “Britannic” … No mention of Titanic … so must date from late 1912 thru 1914. Lines from being folded and a few little scuffs here and there.
Queen Mary: A wonderful thicker stock folding deckplan. These are always great to have for interior and arrangement information. It is interesting to see how areas change from year to year (Usually after the annual winter refit). Excellent like new condition! From Sept 1958 …
