Lovely set of Miniature deck plans for the American with Blue covers. When folded properly, the ships starboard side portrait is proudly printed on the back cover. This is in excellent condition with An agency stamp dated August 1, 1964 stamped on the inside.
I have always loved these deck plan booklets form American Export. Covering there 2 Lovely sisters Independence and Constitution… These are from March 1966 and looks almost brand new.
Excellent publicity Photo of the C# type cargo-liner President Van Buren. Oh to have sailed the world on a cargo ship!
One of the best “builders books” ever done for a ship …. the rebuilding and refurbishment of the SS Leviathan. This copy was owned by CF Dutton … the quartermaster onboard from 1923-1924. There are a few placed where CFD has added noted to the margins .. which just makes this item even more special. The booklet tells of the ships history through her extensive refurbishment by WF Gibbs. The cover is taped by the owner many, many years ago. You can bet this book was on the ship with him!
Lovely little fact and figure booklet that was given out to prospective passengers. These were both used before the maiden voyage as intro booklets and after the Maiden voyage as fact booklets … this one is dated after the maiden voyage. Excellent Lester Beal design for the worlds most modern liner.
Nice photo holder for the Matson Line … Probably the Matsonia or the Lurline shown on the cover surrounded by a floral lei.
A nice little collections of items from a trip on the Big U. TWO newspaper announcements for Sophia Fungaroli, the passenger who went to see her daugther in Scotland and then tour Europe with her other daughter that live in Kansas. These items were tucked into an SSUS airmail envelope with 2 Cabin Class dining room seating tickets and some European stamps.
A nice preliminary set of deck plans for the soon to be completed SS United States. Designed by Lester Beal there are nice blue monochromatic images of the ships interiors. Great like new condition
Lovely full colored Lester Beal designed deck plans for the Tourist Class areas on the mighty Big U. These are the glossy covered version … so they probably date to the later 50’s or early 60’s. Excellent condition.
Great CC deck plans for the sweetheart SS America. The covers for USL deck plans were redesigned by Lester Beal just before the SSUS came into service with their colorful RWB design and American eagle symbol. Nice Interior Black and White Photos. These are dated November 1952.
2 Dinner menus dated 3/1/1954 and 1 breakfast menu dated 3/2/1954. In excellent condition …replicate your own SSUS dining experience!
Nice set of 4 index cards from the South Seas service of the Monterey or Mariposa.
3 dinner and 1 lunch menu for the ship as she was sailing across the pacific toward the United States. The dinner menus are dated 3/14/49, 2/14/49 and 2/11/1949 … the lunch menu is dated 3/9/1949. Captain Hobart J Ehman was in charge, JL McKay was chief steward and HL Schurtz was the executive chef. Excellent cover graphics.
A great early dinner menu for the ship dated September 13, 1948 .. as the ship was en-route to Shanghai. Captain Hobart J Ehman was in charge, JT McCartney was chief steward and HL Schurtz was the executive chef. Excellent cover graphics
4 nice dinner menus for a summertime voyage … Captain Joseph D. Cox was in command. These folks ate well and had a marvelous and varied selection to choose from every night. 2 of the menus are oversized and celebrate Aloha and Oriental Night. Great condition and good graphics.
Very nice deck plan booklet done for the 4 sisters. IMO, these ladies were pretty ugly with their original stove pipe funnels … and not greatly improved when a more conventional funnel was fitted later in their lives. The brochure itself is in excellent condition.
Excellent and like new … ATW Presidents Polk and Monroe deck plan foldout. One entire side is dedicated to plans and interior accommodations … the other showing destination and voyage info.
Nice shore excursion program printed in October of 1961 for the many and varied excursions that were available on the ship’s ATW voyages. Excellent condition.
From the note on back this card originated onboard the President “slow” Polk …I can only imagine sailing slowly along on one of the ATW voyages.
Good Gala Menu cover and 2 FC Breakfast menus from an Eastbound voyage in July of 1956. Good condition with expected aging and border bumps.
The best brochure you could have gotten for the NS Savannah!!! Filled with lovely full color photography and color-coded deck plans … this ship was well ahead of her time! Lucky this George Sharp Beauty is still with us and you can visit her in Baltimore Harbor.
The best Brochure you could have gotten for the Post War Aces: Exeter and Excalibur. These are filled with lovely full color photography and color-coded deck plans … the best for these 2 ships!
Lovely Profile and outdoor pool Post cards for the Modern AE liner.
Excellent log card for the ships voyage 127 East bound to Bremerhaven via Le Harve and Southampton. Looks like there was at least one day of rough sea on this March voyage.
Excellent log card for the ships voyage 130 west bound to NY from Southampton via Le Harve. This card does have some browning toning with its age.
