Excellent brochure for the ships and ports of the GWF ships …the “banana boats”. 31 pages about half dedicated to the ships and the other half the ports. These were great little American build ships.
Once of the best booklets ever done for the ship … and printed by her Builders, the Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. The graphics and information in this booklet are outstanding. The booklet includes the schedule for the trials as well ands may facts and figures of the new mighty liner. I’m sure WFG approved of the design. Lovely centerfold starboard profile.Great condition with a little cover blemish in the upper right
Excellent little Lester Beal Pre Maiden voyage brochure and its original envelope for the mighty SSUS. Beal was a premium American graphic artist in the 1950’s … and he did brochures and other designs for USL ( even designing the cabin soap wrappers). These brochures were used after the Maiden Voyage and through the mid 50’s. There is a hand written note on the back that says “what a ship” .. I could not agree more.
These 3 wonderful sister were designed by George Sharp for the Southern American and African routes leaving out of New Orleans. The Interiors of these ships were the most modern in their day, great condition with a few small wrinkles.

2 unused Postcards for the lovely Indy. Excellent condition.
Wonderful Operations key and fob from the SS United States …this one for the Engrs Testing Lab on D deck. Keys are quite common for the passenger cabins … not so much for the operations areas of the vessel. This key is in excellent condition..
Wonderful Operations key and fob from the SS United States …this one for a trunk room on the Sports deck. There is a little blemish to the lettering. Keys are quite common for the passenger cabins … not so much for the operation areas of the vessel.
Excellent set of menus spanning April 7th-April 10th, 1956. There are 3 Breakfast Menus (April 8,9,10) … 4 lunch Menus (April 7,8,9,10) and 4 Dinner menus (April 7,8,9,10). 3 of the dinner menus have a partial folding flap describing artwork found onboard the ship and the 4th is the Gala Night dinner menu. Nice full set in excellent condition.
The best all inclusive deck plan …. Of all time … is probably these done for the SSUS in the 1960’s. USL combines all deck plans into one, includes lavish full color photography of public spaces and cabins … and added the famous full color cut away! Just Superb and in excellent condition.
Nicely done plans and in full color … these ships dint change much when they were sold by Matson to PFEL.
The plans USL put out in the 50’s and 60s are some of the finest ever done. Fully color coded and including several interior color photos of the public spaces and a cabin. Packed full of info on the “world’s fastest ship”. Excellent condition.
My favorite version of the famed cutaway for the Last American Flagship … suitable for framing!

Excellent heavy tissue Room Plan for the Lurline … she would be just re-entering service after the Great War .. while her sisters sat unused for several years.

Giant sized fold out brochure and deck plan for the new South Pacific Sisters Mariposa and Monterey. Announcing the new sisters … the interior renderings and artistic profile of the ship are outstanding. Super colorful. there is a little seam separation at the fold lines.
Super giant dp folder for the GWF winter 1936-37 cruise season. Super deck plans on each side for different vessels (Veragua is my favorite). Also include large BW interior and onboard photos. A must have for the American Collector
Lovely booklet printed by APL to highlight their many efforts and contributions to the WW2 efforts. Lists vessels under their ownership that played a part in the services including the President Coolidge and the Ruth Alexander.
One of the very best deck plans ever done for 2 sister ships … are these early all class full isometrics done for AE’s Indy and Connie. super detailed and in full color …. with lovely artwork details and features throughout.
