Quite a nice passenger list for this voyage from Southampton to Buenos Aires. It looks like the trip was well patronized thought the autograph pages are blank. The cover is just graphically outstanding.
Excellent like new plan for the little Japanese lady. The deck and cabins are color coded … and the pages include some interior photos. Chico California Agency stamp.
The Winston Chuchhill was a great little gem: a lovely combination of Italian Shipbuilding and Danish Design. I purchased this sofa from Peter Knego after he rescued it and 2 others from the ship when she was scrapped in Alang. According to PK, there were only 3 of these special 2 seater sized sofas ever created by Kay Korbing for any ship. One of the rescued sofas went overseas, one remains with PK in California and this last one can now be yours. In great structural shape, this will need upholstery and foam work to bring it back into its full glory. A very special Item! Shipping calculator will not be correct … I’ll need to quote this!
Great little booklet written in 1970 about the POL’s prewar Bartor … as well as some infor on her successor the second Batory (once HAL’s Maasdam). This has paper covers wrapped with a light cellophane dust jacket. Filled with info, this is written in Polish of course and includes b/w photos. About 63 pages in length.
Lovely set of hurricane glasses from the ship of multi lives. These would be perfect for some Mojitos or Daiquiris.
Great double set of Playing Cards for this ship of many varied lives! Excellent condition.
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.
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!
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!
Nice folder by TC … showing multi like cruises in 1981 (and some related air fares). The cover shows the Rotterdam’s pool and lido deck.
Multi- Line folder for cruises (and related Air fares) for 1966. Excellent condition and full of lots of cruise information!
Lovely MS Oranje sailings and fares for starting in November 1961. I had forgotten the Oranje was a Triple Screw ship … very unusual!
Direct from the land of Don Quoxite …A Spanish Line item for the little sisters. Great graphics and information. Includes a separate 1964 rate sheet
Rare for me to fins Spanish Line items …and this is a great little DP brochure for these 2 little sisters. Great item!
Full color Deck Plan for the then Soviet Flagship Alexander Pushkin .. She is still sailing today as the Marco Polo .. one of the last great classic liners. Lovely color interiors and in great shape… first time I have had this particular plan.
Victoria: She started life for Union Castle in the 30’s and then became the famed and long loved cruiser (initially) for the Incres line. She survived several owners and scores of cruising routes. Peter Knego salvaged and saved many items from her when she went to Alang. This is the first brochure that was done for her … stiff plastic covers, pristine and full of interior renderings.
Excellent like new diary for the little Monarch. She worked with the Queen of Bermuda and did extensive cruising. Eventually she became the Varna.
Great little colorful Clipper line playing cards with box marked Stella Polaris … an uncommon find in great condition.
Direct from the onboard gift shop of one of my favorite ships of all times … the TS Hanseatic. This green portrait goblet is in Excellent condition! $22
Excellent heavy newsprint plan for the VP dated May 1965. She would not last too much longer. Excellent condition.
Pristine deck plan with gorgeous profile for Royal Mail’s Andes. By this time in her career she was used extensively for cruising … just beautiful!.
Two unused Postcards for the long lived ship! Once the flagship for APL … she was sold to Chandris and became the Atlantis. After a year or 2 she was sold to eastern and sailed the Caribbean for years before going to other owners.
The Mikhail Lermontov was the last poet ship built for the Baltic Sea Shipping company in 1972. She sank on cruise after hitting rocks off the shores of New Zealand in 1986 .. and the wreck site has become a destination for divers. This is a perfect deck plan for this ship and showing interior views… a very rare find and in excellent condition!
Great copy of FOB’s very first book … the lives of the liners. Not only is the book a gem of history … each of the illustrations were sketches done by FOB. Everybody knows I’m FOB’s biggest fan and I can’t say enough about this book. Great condition published in 1947.
Lovely plate for the little Munson line. These little combo liners carried passenger and freight all along the eastern US Seaboard ports and Caribbean countries like Cuba from the early 1900’s until the late 1930’s.. Great condition (minor signs of use) with lovely boarder decorations and line logo. Pretty rare to find these!
