CITY OF NEW YORK: 1930 - Deluxe isometric plans w/ interior photos

Product Description

American South African Line – A colorful fold-out (31” by 33”) deck plan with interiors photos, circa 1930, for the line’s African passenger service.  After WW2 the company was renamed Farrell Lines. 

The star of this delightful brochure is the new motorship S.S. CITY OF NEW YORK.  Large black and white photos show off comfy interiors on what was then the largest and nicest American-flagged ship to the African continent.  Images include two views of the Lounge, Dining Room, Smoking Room, Bar, Verandah Cafe, Promenade Deck, and two cabins.  The best part are the decks plans – large and colorful plans done up in an isometric style that was also used by American Export for their FOUR ACES of the same era.  Only two decks are shown but the detail is such that you will enjoy studying them. 

Also in the brochure are American South African Line’s freighters that carried a handful of passengers.  They also rate isometric plans, albeit of only one deck.  Did such simple accommodations ever rate such posh plans?  Separate plans show the WEST CAWTHON, WEST ISLETA, CHINCHA, and HENRY S. GROVE.  While there were only 5-6 cabins on each, a prominent swimming pool (probably canvas) is shown on deck. 

The CITY OF NEW YORK was a victim of WW2.  In March 1942 she was torpedoed off Cape Hatteras.  Out of the 131 passengers, crew, and armed guards onboard, all but twenty-six survived.  The number of survivors increased by one when a pregnant woman gave birth in a lifeboat in fifteen foot waves.  Fortunately the ship’s surgeon was in the same boat and assisted in the birth despite having two broken ribs. 

Good condition with some separation at the folds.
