ALL Masters from the sunny southern routes.

Lloyd Triestino: MS Africa colored deckplan.

Great little 1952 tissue deck plan for this little lady. The colored areas show rooms that had air conditioning … great amenity and almost required for her warm weather route! In good shape, except for a little notch tear/clip and the very top fold.

Italian Line: Conte Di Savoia Press Anti-Rolling Photo rendering

Cool and almost pristine Press photo / rendering showing the Conte’s anti-rolling machinery. The text is no longer with the picture .. but it perhaps was touting the new stabilizing equipment. In the end, it was not very successful, and alas the conte did not survive WW2. The photo is in almost perfect shape and printed on rather heavy stock.

Home Lines: SS Atlantic Resin Souvenir Tray

Excellent resin trays … these look to have never been used. They are a little bigger than most resin ship trays… and have a much higher edge construction. The Atlantic was one of Home Lines last ships and was modeled heavily on the Oceanic of 1965 and recently was retired from MSC Cruises.

Great little plan for this Italian lady. This is dated 1960, though has an agency stamp with Sept 1961 printed on it. it includes one picture , a great profile of the ship sailing in calm seas. This would have been pretty late in the ships Italian Lines life.. she would have been sold out of the fleet in 1965.

Italian Line: 1963 Vulcania Deck Plan

Great deck plan form 1962 for the Vulcania She helped revive Italian Lines service after WW2 and then survived well into the decade of the 60’s .. then she went onto other owners for further service! She had such a long life. Her post WW2 interiors were a mixture of 50’s moderne and pre war tradition. A great folding deck plan is excellent shape.

Adriatica Line: Ausonia deckplan 1967

A gem of a color coded tissue deck plan for the little Italian gal! She sure was a good looking little lady … and chock full of lovely Italian art. My favorite item being the Luzatti stairway panels my buddy peter saved and has for sale on www.midshipcentury.com. She like so many others …ender her career at Alang. The plan is in good shape … but does have some extra wrinkles around the fold lines (probably was folded incorrectly at some point).

Italian line: Mike and Ralph deckplan 1973 MM17

A very nice DP for the Mike and Ralph … and certainly close to the end of their Italian Line career. Both ships went to Iran to be used as barracks .. and were destroyed from abandonment, abuse and finally enemy missile fire. Love comparing DP’s year to year to see the changes that took place.  The plan is in great as new condition.

Lauro Line: Roma tissue deckplan dated 1953

Nice darling colored tissue deck plan for Lauro’s little Roma. She began life as a WW2 C3 type freighter built in Seattle, and she was purchased by Lauro after the hostilities and rebuilt into their little passenger and cruise ship Roma. She had simple but tasteful Italian interiors and was a popular vessel for the Lauro line. The little deck plan is in great shape with a few folding wrinkles.

Home Lines: SS Oceanic 1975 “Linger Longer” cruise deckplan folder.

A few scribbles and scuffs … but otherwise in great shape! The plan was issued 8/1/1974.

Italian / Cosulich Line: Vulcania West Indies and SA Cruise Deckplan

Huge cruise plan for the Vulcania’s 2 twenty day West Indies and South American cruises overlapping Jan/Feb/March 1930. This plan is so huge and colorful … you can almost step right into the rooms. The key even shows little line drawings of the furniture used in the staterooms. The plan has a few separations at the seam lines including a set of 1.5″ tears at one edge. Wonderful graphics and 4 large onboard photos .. 3 of which show her lavish interiors. If this is your ship … this is a must have deckplan.

Italian Line: Life Afloat Logbook of the T/V Raffaello

Nice special issue of the Corriere del Mare.. the Ralph’s newspaper. This is a very early issue (maybe the first) as it talks about the new ship and is loaded with all sorts of trivia info! … Love the “Why is a Ship a She” piece. One side is English the other Italian! Since I do not speak Italian, I have no idea if the information matches side to side.

Italian Line: Mike, Ralph and Ansaldo NY Times supplement

A nice 4 page supplement announcing the building of the Italian twins ,celebrating the Mike’s September 16th 1962 launch and offering 2 pages of info about the Ansaldo shipyard improvements and their ships. The edges of this supplement are a little battered, but the info and images are great. The picture of the Mike thundering down the ways is outstanding!

Home Lines: Oceanic and Atlantic countercard

Excellent counter card for the Oceanic and Atlantic … showing the Atlanic being escorted by smaller watercraft. The Atlantic was the second to the last ship built for Home lines and joined the Oceanic in 1982. There were both eventually sold to Premier to become sister “starships”. This came from the amazing Braynard collection that covered all aspects of the maritime world.

Home Lines: Oceanic Counter Card

 A lovely counter card for the Home Lines Oceanic. She was going to be a crosser… but the plans changed and she became an amazing cruiser. Her rooms were filled with the highest caliber of modern Italian design and art. sadly, she wis ending her days. I will miss her! The edges have a few small bumps , and there is a u shaped bend above the word “built”.. otherwise excellent!

Lloyd Tresitino: Victoria Light Fixture: This item has now sold!

Lovely diamond shaped light for the Scrapped Victoria. I bought this from buddy peter Knego … but alas, the spot I have planned to use it in is now designated to another fixture. These were very similar lights to ones used on contemporary Italian ladies the Doria , Colombo etc. The paint and surfaces will need some attention! It is extremely well made … and is ready for you to restore, rewire and enjoy its 50’s magnificence. This baby is heavy, I may have to quote shipping.

Italian Line: Mike and Ralph cutaway deckplan Restocked! MM17

Lovely deckplan cut away for the marvelous twins. They were certainly the last “express” sisters ever built … as the Atlantic trade was certainly waning away. The cutaway is just in wonderful shape … these were the first 2 large liners ever build with the absence of “sheer’ to their decks. Some personal notes.

Home Lines: Italia Agency Print

Starting her life for SAL … she moved to the Home Lines fleet as the Italia. In the mid 50’s she started doing mostly cruising … and probably paid for herself many times over in profits for her owners. The print and frame are in good shape they have been well taken care of for sure .. but could use a good cleaning for the browning patina of age. *** Shipping calculator may not be accurate, I should quote **

Lovely early gray heavy silk or rayon scarf for the Home lines … that mentions their 3 ships Italia/ Homeric/ Queen Frederica. The names of these vessels circle the Caribbean islands (with working natives) they would have cruised around for there early 50’s schedules.

Costa Line: Red Bakelite ashtray

Groovy 50’s red bakelite ashtray marked “Linea C” … affectionately known as Costa line. Costa started as a grouping of reworked tonnage … their first new building being the Frederico C. Not sure if this ashtray would have ever been aboard the “Frederico” … but certainly the boomerang style dates from around the time of her entry into service in 1958.
