United States lines: Various ships!; a brochure for the ships that eventually would what become the United States Lines. These were all German war prizes … like Hapag’s Valterland, which of course became the Americian Leviathan (WF Gibbs first big project) as well as NDL’s Amerika … which became our America. A real nice brochure with nice photos and a centerfold of the reconditioned Leviathan. Some light chipping to the cover.

Nice souvineer photo folio for the Hawaiian Matson Line. If the ship’s photographer had snapped your pic … you would have been presented with it in a folio like this. Excellent condition!
