A grand framed press photo dated 7/7/65 showing 8 liners at the docks in NYC. This was certainly the twilight of this era … within a decade many of these ships would be retired or sailing for second lives. The SS United States sleeps in Philadelphia harbor and the QM is currently being renovated in Long Beach harbor. The press photo is in good condition and is safely displayed under glass.
Outstanding framed print by Stephen Card as she passes under the Narrows Bridge. A Moran tug has come to greet her and at leas one other vessel passes far to stern. Lovely and beautiful colors … it looks to be on a semi cloudy fall day as the ship arrives. The frame is well done and in good shape with minimal wear. The print is also signed!
All class (First, Cabin and Tourist) for the ancient Stavangerfjord. Though older than the hills by the 1950’s she was well maintained and had a loyal following offering a true “time gone by” experience. The plan is in excellent condition.
Excellent photo frame album for the QE2. Made from leather, this is NIB and in brand new condition. This will display 2 large ( approx. 5×7) photos. Excellent!
Cunard did and outstanding job on these books published for each annual world cruise. There are full of information on the ship as well as destination info for each port of call … and other interesting articles and adverts. This on is in great condition and the dustcover survives in good shape!
Outstanding agency view of the Nieuw Amsterdam headed out of sunny NY Harbor at the start of another crossing. Certainly my favorite Dutch Darling ( as I have said many times). Great print under glass. Slight wear buy over all superb! Pardon my reflection in the glass.
Lovely QE2 printed by the renowned artist and captain Stephen Card. This comes frame in a simple black frame from its original owner. Showing the QE2 something before her mid 1980’s conversion … her funnel is still white and in it’s original configuration.
Excellent interiors folder for the darling Nieuw Amsterdam .. Probably my favorite Dutch Darling of all time. Sadly, she was well worn and aged by the time he left for the Taiwan breakers in the early 70’s. The fold out is in Excellent condition.
Excellent interiors folder for the lovely Rotterdam. Most of the spaces shown in the photography still exist today .. a must see for anyone interested in Vintage Ocean Liners! Excellent condition.
A beautiful graphic brochure for the OO fleet. I find it fascinating how CY Tung grew his business and fleet from rag tag used tonnage into a worldwide shipping enterprise. Really beautiful photos and graphics!
Great little passenger list for the lovely intimate America with some minor bumps and signs of age.
Great little passenger list for the lovely intimate America. Lovely Golden eagle on the cover with some bumps and signs of age.
Lovely little paper matchbook with great 50’s/ 60’s graphics w/ Federico C’s silhouette.
A nice part of 60/70’s Cunard match packs and a little QE2 box of wooden matches (the box is a little flattened). Good shape and still usable.
Once of my favorite Baggage Tag styles are these post war gems from the Cunard Line. In great condition. I have several and one or 2 of them have a little baggage sticker residue on them.
A wonderful little brochure that covers Cunard history and has a lot of fun “comparison“ facts about many of the old and current ships. These brochures took several different forms … this is one of my favorites graphically.
One of my favorite set of post war Cunard brochure are these that covered the different classes (First, Cabin and Tourist). The Cabin class one here shows the wonderful interiors on the Queens, Mauretania and Caronia. I would have loved to cross on any of these ships. Excellent condition.
Very Nice Russian Language deck plan for the Flagship of the soviet fleet. The plan does include some color interior and life aboard type views. Polish up on you Russian!
Certainly, the best DP and Interior foldouts done for the ship … when she was purchased second hand, rebuilt and brought into the fleet. She would later burn =(. Great plan with good interior pictures as well
A simple deck plan done for the ship … dates from later in her life. Great condition with a little writing and Agency stamp on the front.
One of my favorite images of these consorts passing in Mid Atlantic at a combined speed over 50 MPH. This print was professionally matted and reframed in the original frame at some point in the recent past. Super condition and perfect for any Cunard collection. Sorry for the reflections on the glass.
One of the most sought after models for the SSUS. The larger 1/400th scale size allows for lots of great details and it may be a little easier assembly. This model is NIB … still sealed with the original plastic.
Excellent Baggage tag for the MS Lafayette. She had a very short life … less than a decade from launch to her destruction by fire. She had majestic deco interiors and was an evolution forward in the French Shipbuilding program of the 1930’s. The Tag is in like new shape. The picture shows Front and back … cute little ship profile!
