NDL/ USL: Kronprinz Wilhelm / Von Steuben War service book: signed

Wonderful book on the USS Von Steuben’s WW1 wartime service for the Stars and Stripes. She was built as NDL’s Kronprinz Wilhelm and at one time held the Blue Riband of the Atlantic. After the war, rumors abounded that she would be refurbished and used to show off America’s industrial might .. or even more service, but this was not the case and she was the first of the captured German four funneled liners to go to the breakers. Signed by the Author!

American President Lines: President’s Cleveland and Wilson deckplan 1960

Somewhat rare for me to find APL items … so I am happy to have found this and offer it here!. This is a great plan for both ships that includes onboard pictures. There are a few added wrinkles along the fold lines … probably was folded incorrectly at some point. These 2 sisters were sturdy WW2 designed tonnage that was reworked into passenger service.

American Export / Orient Overseas lines: Oceanic Independence plaque

There was a nostalgic liner outcry in the late 70’s and 80’s … where did all the liners go? This plaque for the Oceanic Independence was done as part of a series of past liners to commerate the liners that were still with us. Though she was owned by CY Tung at the time, the Oceanic Indy started life as the Independence for American Export. She cracked in half upon reaching Alang for scrapping.

Ward Line: USS Siboney WW1 portrait

The Ward Line’s Siboney actually served in both world wars … which sandwiched her peacetime service. This is a WW1 portrait of her dazzle painted and laden with lifesaving rafts. The portrait is in good shape for WW1 with a few waves, the black frame has the typical scuffs and scrapes. I may need to quote shipping for this.

United States Lines: Troopship Leviathan

Wonderful image of the Leviathan as a trooper coming into harbor (technically pre-dating her USL ownership). After the war she would become WFGibbs first BIG assignment … and her would restore her top to bottom … emerging as the USL flagship. As is common with these WW1 photos, the framing is pretty scraped and the image is a little wavy … but still is crisp and clear. You can almost read the banners on the surrounding watercraft. ** shipping calculator maybe off… I may need to quote shipping***
