Lovely Deck plan brochure for the Angelina which at the time was still owned by Laura and chartered with Costa. Inside there are lovely color deck plans and interior photos showing passengers at play. The ship had a few good years of cruising left before she would meet her blazing demise.
Costa Line Multi ship folder for South American cruises in late 1977-early 1978.

Excellent Italia deck plan brochure for the lovely little lady. Certainly a one of a kind lady filled with intimate spaces. The deck plans are color coded and there are a number of large color interior pictures showing passengers at play.
Interesting little vinyl “purse” . Certainly something that would have been bought onboard or given as a gift to a passenger. This is padded in subtly textured black and gold vinyl … with “Home Lines: script in gold on the interior. There are plastic interior pockets. Quite unusual and quite lovely.

Lovely souvenir items for the “cruise ship of Tomorrow” the ss Oceanic. She was just one of the most beautiful ships ever built in the 1960’s.
These hard melamine tip trays were very common items in the 70’s and later and could be purchased onboard. Excellent condition.
Interesting Used Album for the lovely Homeric (ex Mariposa). One of my favorite vessels … she had such a nice long 2nd life with Homes Lines … and certainly raked in the cash for them. The cover of this album has the official rendering for the ship in the cover that appeared in many brochures and travel agency portraits. This has been used and there still are a few Homeric items inside. Most pages have some yellowing and tape residue left from items that have been removed. Perfect to Build your own Homeric Album.
Superb Lunch menu for the lovely flagship. Written in both Italian and English … the menu has over 50 culinary delights. Excellent cover art by Silvio Pollomi . About 2 years and 2 months later she would be on the bottom of the Atlantic.

Probably the best brochure ever done for this later Home Liner … the SS Atlantic. Designed and based on the marvelous Oceanic of 1965. The interiors renderings are magnificent! These are somewhat hard to find … a few nicks to the cover.
The ultimate cruise line souvenir for the 70’s and 80’s were these little melamine trays. They are almost indestructible and offer the use a myriad of uses. I use mine as coin trays as well as around the house for coasters. Always great graphics … lots of folks relaxing in the lounge on some beautiful furniture!
