Various Ships - 8 Italian Line post-WW2 fleet postcards

Product Description

Italian Line:  Eight original Italian Line postcards featuring the fleet of the early-to-mid 1950s. 

Of special interest are the two ANDREA DORIA cards.  One shows an artist’s rendering and was issued around the time of her 1953 maiden voyage.  Only her name appears on back.  The second was issued after CRISTOFORO COLOMBO entered service in 1954 and was printed with both names on back.  Except, like so much of the ephemera shared by the sisters, ANDREA DORIA has been blacked out so the postcard could be distributed after the ship had sunk.  Also included is a postcard portrait of COLOMBO with just her name on back. 

Other interesting views – an early 1950s photo portrait of CONTE BIANCAMANO which also lists sister CONTE GRANDE on back; an artist’s rendering of the CONTE GRANDE; identical postcards with GIULIO CESARE identified on one and near-twin AUGUSTUS on the other (it is AUGUSTUS), and a color portrait identified as sisters VULCANIA and SATURNIA. 

The cards are in very good, unposted condition with three stamped on back “Compliments of the Marine Museum, Seamen’s Church Institute of N.Y.”
