SS American Banker Ephemera Collection
All Digitized Ephemera for the SS American Banker available at the GG Archives. Common items of ephemera in our maritime collection include passenger lists, brochures, event and entertainment programs, and other memorabilia produced for a voyage or ship.
Vintage Farewell Dinner Bill of Fare from Saturday, 25 June 1932 on board the SS American Banker of the American Merchant Lines featured Boiled Halibut with Sauce Hollandaise, Filet Steak with Mushrooms, and Peach Melba for dessert.
These are some of the attractions of an American Merchant Lines crossing. . . every day of it memorably pleasant from the minute you go on board in New York until you sail up the famous Thames right into the City of London.
Ephemera contained in the GG Archives collection represent the souvenirs provided to the passengers of each voyage. Many of these souvenir ephemeral items have disappeared over the years.
Our selection varies considerably by ship, and likely contains only a sampling of what was originally produced and printed by the steamship lines.
