Transatlantic Liners 1950-1970
- A beautiful yet forgotten tale of a bygone era
- Superbly illustrated with many unpublished photographs
- A complete reference with detailed and complete material on each ship
- Written by ocean liner history’s biggest star
is a glorious reference of a grand but bygone age – those passenger ships, large and small, that crossed the Atlantic.
There were the likes of the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth, SS United States, Caronia, Andrea Doria, but also smaller, less memorable ships such as the Noordam, Parthia and Laurentia.
The ships, over 150 of them, are grouped by owner – from the short-lived American Banner Line to Israel’s Zim Lines. Each ship is given a full and comprehensive reference: details (routing, length, tonnage, builder, speed, passengers carried, etc.) as well as a full chronology of the vessel’s career, including its ultimate disposition and fate.
Overall, it is an extensive reference work on a glorious past and a revival of an all-star maritime cast.
