Great brochure for these pre WW2 motor ship survivors! Love the post war interior space photographs …though there certainly were some rooms left in their original prewar design (though revamped a little of course). Great cover ART … but with a little scuffing to the covers.
Lovely little ticket and paperwork folder for the Italian line … Probably dates from the 50’s or 60’s … like new!
Lovely embossed and richly decorated concert program dated . Great condition!
Love passenger list for the little 20’s ship. Rich and Great leather-looking cover… really paper with gold details. Covers a voyage in Dec 1925
Lovely little fold out explaining the gourmet selections found on a typical Italian line crossing. Sample menus .. I’d gain 10 pounds for sure! Great condition and lovely graphics.
A colorful lido deck scene dominates the cover … with a little Leo profile sailing along the bottom of this 1962 sailings folder. Certainly the Mike and Ralph were on the drawing tables. Great shape with a few scuff marks.
A stunning couple in high fashion at a promenade railing adorned this sailings folder form 1959. The Colombo, Saturnia, Vulcania and G Cesare are all mentioned .. the Leo was still being built to replace the Doria, and the 2 Conte’s B and G as well as the Augustus were on the South American route.
Great shape with a little scuffing.
Lovely little folder for the Italian line and there reviving NY services… Conte Binacamano, Vulcania and Saturnia are there 2 main ships mentioned here. The red white and green colors are pure Italian and who could not love the motorship graphic on the cover! Pretty good shape with minor scuffing
Nice good sized AT fir Costa lines… Probably swiped for an onboard lounge. It is brass colored .. but seems to be more like copper weight and feel. Lovely Costa logo and outline of the Frederico C in the back ground.
Tragic and dramatic photo of the Doria right before her final plunge to the bottom. Lots going on in this photo. The sea is broiling around the sinking ship … interesting a vessel is almost tight on top of the turbulence … Some unused lifeboats are floating around in the debris field and the plane buzzes overhead allowing press photographers a full view of the action below. A couple of “age” spots on the photograph.
Great folder in Excellent condition … covers the 1965 season …. includes the introduction of the Raffello, Michelangelo… and then the Leonardo Da Vinci, C. Colombo, Saturnia and Vulcania. Great cover photo of the Leo! Dated December 1964.
Great folder in Excellent condition … covers the 1973 season …. for the Raffello, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and the C. Colombo. Great photos and of course lots of 1973 info.
Wonderful little plan for the beautiful Homeric. Heavier tissue plan in green and white. Includes great plans and photos
Great 1965 rate folder for the Italian line ships (covers all ship and ports) … especially the inaugural year for the Mike and Ralph! Dated 5/65 …Like new condition!
Both were rebuilt Dutch “superliners” and both had tragic ends. The set of card are in good shape.
Interesting folder of onboard stationery, envelopes and a post card for the Doric. Of course these would have been in every cabin for folks to use to write home …. each stationery piece and envelop having a little line drawing of the ship…. Instant good advertising! Insides is a laundry rate sheet, about 5 sheets of stationery, the accompanying envelops, some air mail envelopes and a postcard. The folder has an outstanding image of the Doric on the front … and the Oceanic on the rear! A few cover scuffs … but wonderful!
Lovely deckplan for the Italia! Built for the Swedes before WW2, she came to Home lines after WW@ and really helped to build the Caribbean Cruise market. This is in great shape, Written in English and has several interior and exterior photos.
Swiped from onboard … a lovely green ashtray with gold line lettering. The gold is in great shape with maybe a tiny bit of loss and the heavy green glass is perfect. Great shape… probably for one of the Italian beauties!
Needs to be cleaned.
Lovely metallic souvenir dish for the Andrea C. This is not silver but nice heavy metal that is etched to be 2 tones. Lovely profile of the lovely little Andrea C. really neat little item!
Great little history of the Italian line written in 1973. several nice b/w pictures of various vessels including the REX. About 15 pages, the last several do have crease. Not a common item for the NA market.
Nice little fold out for the later 60’s fleet … covers the ships sailing on the North Atlantic.. Mike, Ralph, Chris and Leo are covered. A nice loose mosaic of pictures on the inside that celebrates life on board.
Lovely melamine tip try for the Homes Lines Doric showing the form and after decks. Once the pride of the Zim lines as the Shalom… the ship went to Homes lines and became their Doric where she cruises for many years before going to yet other owners. In like new condition!
Lovely program with lovely cover art for the entertainment in the ballroom Feb 9th 1953. Music by Mozart and many others performed by the ships orchestra and special guest entertainers. There are a couple of small punch holes where this was once mounted is someone’s album.
Direct form the gift shop … and still smelling lightly of lovely perfume (probably also bought onboard) Is this wonderful silk scarf.
There is a great profile outline of one of the ships and that is surrounded by scenes of life onboard. The colors are vibrant and I do not see any flaws. Great home Lines “castle” Logo.
A beautiful modern seascape is on the cover of this great little menu … which is written in Italian and English. these second class passengers ate well … I wonder what the roasted partridges would have tasted like(chicken?). Embossed LT logo on the cover. In great shape with browning to the background. Certainly an exquisite deco masterpiece that had too short of a life.
