A modern liner like no other .. the QM2 is touted as the successor to the lovely and then soon to be retired QE2. The first ship brochure is full of renderings on the QM2’s interiors and amenities… the 2 story dining room is awesome! The second brochures covers her many “maiden” voyages as well as first season of cruising etc. Direct from Cunard/Carnival.. you won’t find early info on the QM2 that is better than these! Seattle agency sticker .. Great condition!
Lovely leather and metal key chain Luggage tag showing the QE2 in profile with a grey hull. this color scheme only lasted a short time right after her Falkland Island service. Excellent condition .. and certainly not to common to find!
Great little instructional panel brochure giving instructions on how to mail items to the ship during her 10th anniversary cruise in 1980. The QE2 was just about to come into her own sort of Nostalgic era … and become a real breadwinner for Cunard
Lovely little watercolor reprint .. I can’t read the names .. it could be either lovely little ship. When built, Cunard thought the era of the BIG super ships was over.. and concentrated on these smaller type ships. The print is in outstanding shape the fame has some bumps and nicks etc.
I just love these souvenir portfolios.. they are packed with great color public room pictures and tidbits of facts and figures. This one does have some rusty staining to the cover … but the inside info is intact and awesome. The back pocket would have held menus and misc items from your voyage, but these have long since been removed. Good used condition! Last one I saw online sold for over $100!
Seven lovely metallic drink coasters form the 1983 WCS cruise aboard the QE2. There are 6 total individually showing a Possum, Kangaroo, Platypus, Emu, Koala and a Kookaburra bird. These have been framed long ago … and preserved very well …very unique!
Awesome issue of the Titanic Commutator Vol 24 Number 13 for November 2000. Probably the highlight of the issue is the documentation of the Olympic Restaurant on the Millennium. Great Photographs … certainly detailed and extraordinary! As always, this magazine is loaded with any info related to the Titanic and related ships… and there are other various stories covered in this fine issue.
Small yet graphically superb cruising program for White Star’s SS Homeric and MV Britannic. The Homeric did 3 cruises: Christmas, a West Indies Cruise and Easter Cruise, while the MV Britannic took a winter cruise around the Med Sea. The orange cover graphics scream deco and are topped by a handsome “White Star”. Excellent condition!
Informative thick and heavy rates brochure for the fleet … includes the entire Atlantic from Jan 1960 through December 1960. Heavy stock white covers in Great shape!
Excellent CC plan for the Maury 2. She was a little English darling.In great shape and made of heavier paper than the normal tissue. Love the furniture arrangements! There is an agency stamp form NYC. Great condition.
Three great items from the QM that all sport the famous port side Turner image of the ship blasting along through the waves of the North Atlantic. The lot contains a postcard, Voyage souvenir log from June 1958 and a Gala menu dated July 12th 1958. All 2 items have some yellow spots but the images are great! good condition!
Great little celluloid pin with a b/w image of the Maury 2. She was such a delightful little ship with her deco interiors. She survived into the 60’s but went to the scrappers when her last cruises were not successful.
Wonderful letter cards from the QE . These would have been available in the writing room and Cunard encouraged folks to write ( it was good advertising). The cover of the card is shown with the handsome Tuner image of the ship racing along on fairly calm seas .. she was ever bit the Flagship. The cards are in great shape … write all your Cunard fans in style. There are several available!
The large extravagant intro Brochure for the QM2 , how can this be described other than lovely? Cunard sure markets and capitalizes on the traditional and nostalgic aspects of the vessel and ocean liner travel .. and of course the ships relations to her historic retired fleet mates. The brochure if chock full of renderings of the ships interiors … most are almost too real looking not to be true photos! The insert in the back covers all of her voyages for the first season. Truly a modern masterpiece! A little bump to the cover corners.
Love little map of the British Isles give out to passengers. It is done in color and the opposite side of the map has a superb engraving view of the Cunard Building at 25 Broadway in NYC (which still exists). I was there a few years ago .. there are still Cunard Brass plaques near the entries. Excellent condition with a little hand writing on the front cover.. and a stamp “property of” mark on the rear cover.
Nice little rare Churchman cig card for the QM. I have seen these cards from candy bars, cigarettes and cereal boxes. This card is from the mid-1930’s, when the QM was spanking new. One of my favorite early QM profile views … shown in portrait orientation. Like new condition!
Nice little rare Mars card for the QM. These little collector cards came in many forms: I have seen them from candy bars, cigarettes and cereal boxes. This little card is from Mars candy company and shows the QM’s bridge (Starboard side profile). This card is from the mid-1930’s, when the QM was spanking new. Interesting view shown in Portrait orientation. Like new condition!
Nice little rare Mars card for the QM. These little collector cards come in many forms: I have seen them from candy bars, cigarettes and cereal boxes. This little card is from mars candy company and shows the QM’s “tourist” decks at the stern of the ship. This card is from the mid-1930’s, when the QM was spanking new. Interesting view in landscape orientation. Like New condition!
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!
4 lovely postcards of the QM … once she had arrived and became the Tourist Attraction for Long Beach. @ of the card even cover the Spruce Goose… which was Howard Hughs enormous wood plane designed for use in WW2 … he flew her only once after the war ended. The Goosey was moved to Oregon to another museum about 5 years or so ago. The cards are in great shape.
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!
Famous Life magazine coverage of the QM’s retirement from October 6 1967. The multi page article covers the Queen Mary’s last commercial voyage and her life up till that point. He was endeared by tens of thousands of travelers and people from all walks of life and nationalities. Luckily, she survives somewhat intact in Long Beach, Ca. The magazine is in great shape!
Excellent set of 12 Mornflake cards for Cunard’s postwar fleet. Covers all vessels right up to my little Canadian favorite: Ivernia! These are in excellent shape and the backs of the cards cover vital statistics etc for each ship shown. These would be killer framed! I wish cerealbox prizes were this good when I was growing up!
A very nice copy of the OLP SB reprint for the QM … a must have if you love this splendid vessel! Whats very cool about this particular issue is that a prior owner has tastefully alos used it as a QM scrapbook, pasting in postcards and articles and other items onto blank pages and cover plates. There are even some loose pages for Life magazine hiding in the endplates. Also tipped in is a lovely color copy of the famous cut away done for the ship.
Excellent sealed deck of cards from a Cunard liner post WW2. Lovely bumblebee yellow and black with the Cunard Lion and gold trimmings. The box has minor soil and scuff… but the cards are still safely wrapped in plastic. Perfect Item for you card sharks!
