Overview
-

‘Transatlantic Liners 1950-1970’ is a glorious reference of a grand but bygone age to 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’, ‘Paryhia’ 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, detailed reference: details (routing, length, tonnage, builder, speed, passengers carried, etc.) as well as a full chronology of the vessel's career including it's ultimate disposition and fate. Overall, it will be an extensive reference work. And altogether, it will be a revival of an all-star maritime cast!
