United States Lines: SSUS Pre-Maiden Small Beal Brochure

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.

Packed with lots of historic info and filled with pictures and period ads etc. The cover has a little wear, a bit of the lower left hand side is detached from the binding.
