One of the best plans ever done for a liner … these mid 1960’s plans combine all classes and well as the cut away that was done for the ship into one ultimate brochure plan. These are hard to fine in excellent shape .. and this one is really nice with just a touch of toning to the cover.
Nice early set of SSUS Cabin class deck plans .. these probably date to the early 1950’s. USL deck plans in this time period were superb … very detailed including photos and filled with color. This particular plan is in excellent condition.
Once of the best booklets ever done for the ship … and printed by her Builders, the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. The graphics and information in this booklet are outstanding. The booklet includes the schedule for the trials as well ands may facts and figures of the new mighty liner. I’m sure WFG approved of the design. Lovely centerfold starboard profile.Great condition with a little cover blemish in the upper right
Excellent little Lester Beal Pre Maiden voyage brochure and its original envelope for the mighty SSUS. Beal was a premium American graphic artist in the 1950’s … and he did brochures and other designs for USL ( even designing the cabin soap wrappers). These brochures were used after the Maiden Voyage and through the mid 50’s. There is a hand written note on the back that says “what a ship” .. I could not agree more.
3 unused postcards for the American Superliner. Excellent condition.
Wonderful Operations key and fob from the SS United States …this one for the Engrs Testing Lab on D deck. Keys are quite common for the passenger cabins … not so much for the operations areas of the vessel. This key is in excellent condition..

The best all inclusive deck plan …. Of all time … is probably these done for the SSUS in the 1960’s. USL combines all deck plans into one, includes lavish full color photography of public spaces and cabins … and added the famous full color cut away! Just Superb and in excellent condition.
The plans USL put out in the 50’s and 60s are some of the finest ever done. Fully color coded and including several interior color photos of the public spaces and a cabin. Packed full of info on the “world’s fastest ship”. Excellent condition.

Certainly the best brochure ever done for the mighty SS United States … is this lovely example by Lester Beal. Lester did this brochure for the SSUS when she introduced (he also did one for the America) The SSUS brochure was filed with color renderings of public rooms and cabins … and many of these same rendering appeared in advertisements for the ship. The centerfold opens to a wonderful starboard profile one in Lester’s 50’s modern graphics . Just a lovely item in great shape with a tiny little yellowing to the paper. Don’t miss this one .. these usually sell pretty quickly.
