Great unused card for the Carmania. She had a good life with Cunard and was best known for her fierce battle in WW1 with the German Cap Trafalgar.
Unused and in nice condition … showing the ship at speed with a bone in her teeth and smoke and steam coming out her stacks.
Nice set of cards for the speedy Campania. Both are unsent and not written on or sent … but do have some age and wear spots.
Exceptional book written by Don Lynch and Illustrated by renown artist Ken Marschall. Ken’s artwork shines through almost every page of the book .. a true master
These seems to date form a March Med cruise … probably in the early 1930’s. The Artwork and graphics are superb and represent stops at Athens, Monaco, Madeira, Algiers, Haifa, Constantinople, Gibraltar and Naples. In all of them you can see a WSL ship in the harbor … mostly a Big 4 Vessel (like Adriatic) … though the vessel at Constantinople is surely Homeric. The edges are bumpy as if removed from a folder or booklet and most have some fold lines etc. Nice set though!
Dated just 11 days before the Great Wall Street Stock Crash of 1929… is this lovely little horseracing program the carefree passengers would have enjoyed. It looks like there would have been 6 different races!
Simple heavy board menu card for the then tiny Germanic … at one time she would have been the largest ship in the fleet! Olives and Caviar top the list of selections … Devilled Sardines are at the end and would never have been on my plate. Dated 6/21/1908.
Nice little folder for the Flagship … printed onboard for the Cherbourg and Southampton landings 6/26/1934. Printed in both English and French. Unusual item to have survived.
Typical sailings folder for the WSL fleet … also includes Canadian and shared services … lovely ad for the Belgenland’s 3rd world cruise. Stamped James Jennison and printed on very smooth paper.
Lovely song sheet of 36 selections that would have been passed out to passengers on any voyage. Thee would have been entertainment selections of a nice souvenir for the voyager. This one dates close to the time of the “new” MV Britannic.
Lovely Passenger list for the Med cruise that began on 1/1/24 1958. By this time, the Britannic was winding down her time in the post war fleet and would only be around a few more years … The Last of the White Star fleet. There are a few notations and scribblings inside … all extra history! The yellow covers seem to be made from a fiber-ous construction paper.
Great program listing the proposed events for the crossing from NYC as well as who the sponsors for the events would be… dated July 3rd 1931.
Great program listing the proposed events for the crossing and well as who the sponsors for the events would be… dated 8/29/31.
Great list of the daily events for the National Tour Cruise taking place. The swimming pool and Gym were open all day and the movie “The Lady Is Willing” was shown at 830 in the Main Lounge.
Simple little program for the entertainment on May 18 1922. The Honorable Justice W.A Weir was the event sponsor for the 12 different entertainment selections.
Great program listing the various events scheduled throughout the October 1929 voyage.
Great little program card dot the athletic events to be held on deck 9/13/1932. All competitors were requested to wear Bathing costumes in readiness. 7 events ranging from Potato Races to Tug of War.
Great fold out for the lovely little Lauren tic … for a series of 3 summertime cruises from either NYC or Montreal. From the graphics I’d date this in the very late 20’s or early 30’s … there is not date I can see. Greta graphics and R/W/B coloring.
Great little bakelite ashtray from any fleet vessel in the 1950’s. Made by the Fraser glass company. In good shape with onboard typical use.
Lovely Passenger list for the RMS Canada ship Managed by the Dominion Line. This is a List of Cabin Passengers dated September 24th, 1921. Interesting this also mentions the Regina as completing and the Doric as building. Unusual item!
Love portrait post card for the stout MV Britannic. She was the next to the last new build for the WSL and lasted into 1960. Great Image!
A very nice set of Preliminary plans for the Flagship … the world was awaiting with baited breath for her to make her debut when these were printed. Great condition … these have only been unfolded a few times as far as I can tell.
What a magnificent cruise this must have been … starting jan16th from NYC and Arrive back there on April 16th ..3 months of QE2 bliss! You would have started through the Panama Canal on Jan 24th and returned through on April 4th after your Pacific Adventure! Great condition.
Nice flyer guide on the voyage through the canal zone. These would have been available on any cruise through the canal … this particular one has a photo on the QE2 inside and well as tankers, freighters and other craft.
Great fabric ticket folder … looks to be the Aquitania on the cover. Line all ships prior to ww1 .. they made most of their profits on carrying steerage from the old world to the new. Excellent condition.
