Unites States Lines: SS United States: A Look Inside

Famous A Look inside Logan Reaves cutaway for the SS United States. Several different versions of this cutaway were released over the ships lifetime … this is my favorite. Lovely and colorful.. The R/W/B colored cover has the Alyward rendering of the ship shown and the inside folks out with the Reaves cutaway of the ship … and other ship info and Hales trophy info as well. Superb!
