Probably the ultimate souvenir you could have from your voyage onboard would be one of these high quality and detailed models. These were probably also used at local travel agencies.
Excellent condition! $125
3 great photos.. the first is an artist’s rendering of the ship … a lovely drawing of the ship steaming along calm seas. The second and third show the captain and a gentleman pictured next to the funnel on her maiden voyage. I am sure the gentleman has to be an important Home Lines official to enjoy the company of the ships master on Her Maiden Arrival in NYC.
Lovely photo of the ships Maiden arrival into NYC. Fully flagged and tug boats off the starboard side, the ship looks pristine!
One of the photos shows the lovely ship docked in Genoa the other is of her Lido Bar. I love the furniture… look at the 3 legged tables, LOVE! Only the furniture side shown.
One used and one unused postcard showing the Angelina. The used card is dated 1976 …a few years later she would be a burned out hulk. The unused card shows her anchored at Nassau.
Once Bill moved on from the Dover style picture books .. he worked with Carmania press to offer the next series of Passenger Ships “insert county here” style books. these are every bit as nice as the earlier Dover books .. and maybe even have a little more info about each ship and general history. full of great B&W photos. In great shape and signed by Bill on the inside to one of his shippie friends.
Excellent double set of playing cards … still sealed in their cellophane wrappings. One set has a lovely Yellow Greek fret border .. the other blue!. I loves this white hulled queen of the Caribbean!
Lovely baggage tag for the lovely Homeric. She was one on the multiple named Matson liners that was sold off after WW2 and made Home Lines a lot of cash cruising around warm climates . The tag is in excellent condition. Bright colors and ship profile against a sunny disc.
3 nice daily activity programs for the ship ..she had only been in service about 2 months .. so she was still spanking new and pristine. lots going on onboard the ship …These are great!
Great little ashtray for the lovely little intimate Victoria … bright and cheery blue and yellow colors … much like the seas and beaches of the Caribbean she visited.
Great graphics on the cover of this 1936 fare folder. Like New condition for being printed in 1936 ..with a little scuff to the one edge around the staple!!
Good deck plan for the flagship Leo. She was a fuel guzzler and closed out the traditional Italian Liner services in the later 19709’s and then cruised solo for a bit until being laid up and destroyed by fire. Good condition deck plan with typical wear from use.
Great Pink deck plan for the lovely Saturnia. She was certainly in her Twilight years with the Italian line… having been a Consulich product of the late 20’s. Good condition with expected/typical ware from use.
Great heavy china side dish form on o the home Liners! The dish is Hutschenreuther (try typing that fast) china from Germany … Heavy and good quality //excellent condition.
Nice little Loving cup form a “Home” liner …. probably given away on board as a prize for some event … like a costume party or crossword challenge. Nice little crown logo on the wood base …needs polishing
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.
