Front Brochure Cover of Passenger Ships Owned by the United States Government Published in 1922

1922 - Passenger Ships of the United States Lines

One of the first and most comprehensive brochures on the early beginnings of the United States Lines. Many photographs documents the cabin class (First Class/Second Class) amenities on the many ships of the USL. Undated, but likely published in 1922 before the Leviathan came into service in 1923. Featured Ships: George Washington, America, President Roosevelt, President Harding, President Monroe, President Adams, President Van Buren, President Polk, President Garfield, President Fillmore, and President Arthur.

Front Brochure Cover, Dollar Steamship Line President Liners from 1925.

1925 - Dollar Steamship Line - The President Liners

Rare 1925 Brochure from The Dollar Steamship Line on their President Liners. Many photographs document their distinctively higher standard of luxury, comfort, and convenience -- a measure designed to meet the requirements of ocean voyagers. Ships featured: President Van Buren, President Monroe, President Harrison,
President Adams, President Garfield, President Hayes, and President Polk.

 

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.
