Excellent and like new … ATW Presidents Polk and Monroe deck plan foldout. One entire side is dedicated to plans and interior accommodations … the other showing destination and voyage info.
Nice shore excursion program printed in October of 1961 for the many and varied excursions that were available on the ship’s ATW voyages. Excellent condition.
From the note on back this card originated onboard the President “slow” Polk …I can only imagine sailing slowly along on one of the ATW voyages.
Good Gala Menu cover and 2 FC Breakfast menus from an Eastbound voyage in July of 1956. Good condition with expected aging and border bumps.
The best brochure you could have gotten for the NS Savannah!!! Filled with lovely full color photography and color-coded deck plans … this ship was well ahead of her time! Lucky this George Sharp Beauty is still with us and you can visit her in Baltimore Harbor.
The best Brochure you could have gotten for the Post War Aces: Exeter and Excalibur. These are filled with lovely full color photography and color-coded deck plans … the best for these 2 ships!
Lovely Profile and outdoor pool Post cards for the Modern AE liner.
Excellent log card for the ships voyage 130 west bound to NY from Southampton via Le Harve. This card does have some browning toning with its age.
In a nutshell…”Keep your valuables locked up” … theft was always an issue when the ships were in port and visitors could walk freely aboard.
Gala Menu and Daily Program for the mighty SSUS … Richard Ridington was in command on this particular voyage. The ship was travelling eastbound for Europe.
Excellent Gala Menu for the America with her Famous early image of the ship by Alyward. John Anderson was in command of the ship for this voyage dated 7/12/1952 (someplace she would cross paths with the new SSUS on her maiden Voyage) … he would soon become master of the SSUS. A couple of “wine” blemishes on the cover but still a nice early menu.
Excellent FCDP for the lovely America … colorful graphic designs by Lester Beal and full of excellent interior photography. LA, CA agency stamp on rear.
Great Cruise deck plan for the mighty SSUS … adorned with condo drum, maraca and other instrument players.
Fancy dinner menu for the President Polk as she was en route to Yokohama on cruise around the world voyage 62. These folks ate well!
Great PL for the lovely Little Monterey as she was sailing form Hawaii to San Francisco on July 26th 1962.
One of the best reference materials for the ship was this 1984 auction catalogue … packed with unique lots of furniture, artwork, towels, teapots, toilets … basically everything onboard … all was for sale! I sure wish I would have been old enough to go to the auction!
Excellent log card for the ships voyage 160 west bound to NY from Southampton via Le Harve.
Nice set of unused tags for the USL … probably dating to the later 1940’s.
Great copy of the colorful SS America cruise plans … I bet a West Indies cruise on this little al would have been just delightful. Printed double sided on heavier newsprint like paper.
One of Billy Milly’s excellent overview books… filled with photos and info on the greatest American passenger ships. This was an Ex library book and discarded from the Pulaski, Va Library. A great book and priced accordingly.
The crafty and thrifty Greeks always made good use of secondhand tonnage … and they loved using American ships for their quality construction. The Greeks snapped up the SS America when USL decided to sell her in the mid 1960’s and made a fortune with the immigrant trade to Australia. She had several name and ownership changes and wrecked off the Canary Islands on her way to becoming a hotel in the far east. A sad ending to a spectacular and charming ship. An excellent copy in like new condition and full of spectacular photography that shows off her American Heritage well.
Lovely publicity view of the Connie later in her life …. Well after her forward superstructure was rebuilt and her hull was painted white. Years later she and her sister would revive cruising around the Hawaiian Islands. She would later sink on her way to the scrappers.
Once of the most sought after items from the Ships EARLY life is this excellent trials booklet that was published in celebration of the chips completion and Trials off the Virginia Capes. Filled with info on the ship , trials schedules, decoration info, a portside centerfold profile, general ship facts and a list of suppliers … all in all 31 pages dedicated to the ship. I have had a few of these over the years … and they are getting harder to find all the time … and this one is in very good condition with just a little light blemishing to the cover and some little writing on the back cover.
Passenger list for the America … an eastbound voyage from NYC to Southampton via Cobh and Le Havre departing on 9/9/1950. Very nice condition with age appropriate toning to the paper
Great Gala Menu form the SS America dated Sept 14, 1950. America was sailing eastbound … and the clocks were advance and hour at midnight. Lovely delicious sounding and diverse fare on the menu … what a meal! Good condition with some toning to the cover. Lovely astrology symbols encircle a starboard bow rendering of the ship.
