Vintage Brochure - Activities of Passengers On Board USL Ocean Liners
See passengers engage in a number of activities and events on board the ocean liners of the United States Lines. From dancing to relaxing on the promenade in a deck chair to playing a game of deck tennis. It's all here.
Forty winks before dinner. . And a comfortable deck chair certainly is "tops" for this purpose.
A Porthole Portrait to send back to the crowd at home. (And it gives us the opportunity to point out the size of the portholes,which are really unusually large.)
What a setting for a game of deck tennis. Two full- sized courts provide ampe room. And there are plenty of seats for those who just like to be in the sun.
Deck golf is becoming increasingly popular—especially with real followers of the game who don't want to lose their touch.
There's a good dance floor in the Verandah Cafe — and a top-notch American orchestra that will gladly play any tune you request. That's a combination which just makes you want to dance.
Substituting a medicine ball in place of the light deck tennis quoit is great sport if you survive. It looks like a game for he-men only.
Morning bouillon on deck tides over sea-going appetites until lunch.
Each voyage the life preservers work overtime as picture frames.
Mr.and Mrs.Court D. Res enjoy an afternoon stroll on one of the broad and airy promenade decks of the Washington.
Looking "aft" from the boat deck onto the broad and sunny game and recreation deck for which the Manhattan and Washington are especially noted.
The bellboy has just delivered a bon voyage gift. And if the person who sent the flowers could see this picture, he'd certainly feel amply repaid.
Children aren't overlooked when gala parties are planned. Decoration, favors, as much ice cream and cake as parents will allow.And a table all to themselves.
Morning dip. The pools on the Manhattan and Washington are not only huge and handsomely tiled throughout, but conveniently located right next to the gymnasiums.
A corner of the beautiful, air-conditioned dining room on the Manhattan. We should talk here about the grand food on these ships, but once having tasted it we don't think you have to be told.
"This is the life," anyone will agree. Mr. and Mrs. William Duncan bask in the sunshine on one of the open decks.
Shuffleboard on the Washington's sunny sports deck. For people who like to walk, it's only eight laps to a mile and this picture just about proves it.
