The first and best brochure ever done for the “Greatest Ocean Liner of our time” .. the QM2. Super thick and filled with renderings of her interiors and all other sorts of great info about the ship. These are getting harder to find .. though Cunard printed lots of them!
Nice fold out that covers cruises by the Berengaria, Aquitania, Samaria, Franconia. A little scuffing dated April 4 1933
Great little QE and Carmania/Franconia fold out … advertising Atlantic voyages and Bermuda holidays.
Lovely menu for June 12, 1950 .. a little yellowed inside … but the real treat here is the cover … which shows profiles of the early Post WW2 fleet. The only ship missing is the Georgic which was making austerity voyages for the Government.
Lovely fill color photography adverts the Tourist class comforts of the Cunard fleet … covers the Queens, Sylvania and a green hulled Mauretania.
Probably the most interesting amenity pictured is the laundrette on the QE …where a series of Hoover spin washer/dryers were available for passenger use. Other than a 4” rip along the cover seam the brochure is excellent condition.
Excellent first class interiors brochure for the 2 Queens, Caronia and Mauretania. You can’t beat the color photography, playful graphics and golden details found in this brochure .. Near Mint! Lovely centerfold of the 4 ships.
Great little booklet that covers the Fun amenities of Ocean travel .. lovely picture and graphics.
Dated 1967 this little list covers all the Adult items that could be consumed onboard. Great condition
Interesting little booklet brochure for the tourist class interiors of the Queens, Mauretania, and Britannic. Great condition with a little scuffing normal to a 60+ year old document. There is a Pottstown Pennsylvania Agency Stamp on the back cover.
Interesting little booklet brochure for the post war fleet ships and their interiors and amenities. Covers the Queens, Caronia, Mauretania, Media/Parthia, Britannic. There is a small rip to the cover .. otherwise normal wear and includes an agency Stamp from Reading Pennsylvania.
Interesting certificate for 1000 pounds of tock purchased in 1950. Per the notes on the back it was cashed by the probate court in 1962 after the owner passed away in 1961.
Nice 28 page booklet put together by Bill Miller … probably for a lecture series he gave on board the QE2. Features several short stories and photocopied drawings of the ships. Inscribed by Billie himself in 2003.
Excellent Bar menu swiped from the ship sometime in 1994. Lots of adult drink selections
Lovely Calendar planner bought onboard Hotel Queen Mary. Like New condition and each month has a photo image from her early years.
Excellent onboard service Eggcup by Maddock … super durable.
Lovely onboard souvenir ashtray for the Q … made form Quality Salisbury china. Excellent condition.
These are great ” comparison” reprints and quite suitable for framing or could be made into smaller placemats. Printed on heavy stock. Probably an items printed by 7’cs press
Nice set of 18 postcards covering the building of the Mighty QM2… very nice images that could be framed.
Little cobalt blue and gold boxed soap from the QE2 … highly perfumed and just gorgeous! The Cunard crest is stamped into the top of the soap.
Highly detailed medallion in the original box for the 1996 Voyage to Distant Empires world cruise. Excellent condition. I wash the QE2 was still in service instead of layup.
Lovely medallion to Commemorate the QE2’s 1975 World cruise. These continue to be popular souvenirs .. often encased in plastic.
Modern medallion to Commemorate the loss of the Lusitania. Excellent condition!
75 shares of IMM stock would have been a nice little investment back in the day … now just interesting to collectors for the 4 funneled ship image and its tie to the historical company. one edge of this is a little wrinkled .. but could be flattened easily (especially if framed). The 4 funnel ship is a nod toward the Olympic … but looks a bit more like one of the German 4 stackers.
Lovely and favorite children’s Novel “The House at Pooh Corner” stamped with the Cunard gold crest on the cover and inside “Queen Mary Library.” In great condition, it was probably a very popular book with traveling Nanny’s to lure the little ones to sleep. Greta condition!
The culmination of selling tools for Gene Darcy’s Ocean liner “wares” would be this catalogue he produced showing many of the items available for purchase. He started is company selling items scrapped from the Queen Mary in Long Beach and then added other ships and items after the initial sales successes. From the somewhat humble start, greed and growth soon set in and many of the later items he added have been proven to be of fictitious historical provenance .. though some of these later “replica” items have now become collectible as well. The catalogue is in excellent condition and provides a fantastic glimpse into items sold.
