ALCANTARA: 1926 - Post-war deluxe interiors brochure in German

Product Description

Royal Mail Line: A twenty page interiors brochure in German for the ALCANTARA from the immediate post-war period.

As seen on the cover, her forward funnel has been removed and the remaining funnel lengthened from her original motorship style. The ship's interiors were modernized after the war, although, according to the brochure, an effort was made to retain some of her old charms, "... an endeavour has been made to incorporate in well-balanced proportions the best of both Period and Modern design, intended to appeal to the discriminating traveler of either school of thought." Judging from the gorgeous color photography, Royal Mail succeeded.

The photos are of First Class. There is the Lounge, a muted mixture of dusty rose, browns, and fern green; the mint green Reading Room; and the Dining Saloon with decor reminiscent of a small town movie palace.  Other photos show the Smoking Room, Swimming Pool, Reading and Writing Room, Cocktail Bar, a suite sitting room and a suite bedroom, and a wood lined cabin. Second Class photos show the Lounge, Smoke Room, Dining Saloon, and a cabin.

If her exteriors proportions were a little skewed with the funnel chop, the ALCANTARA'S interiors just got better with age.

Excellent condition.
