AMERICA: 1940 - First, Cabin & Tourist deck plans from 1949-50

Product Description

United States Lines:  A set of three deck plans – First, Cabin, and Tourist – from 1949-1950 for the S.S. AMERICA. 

These plans are the last hurrah for the old International Mercantile Maritime Corporation design used for decades on everything from White Star’s OLYMPIC to Panama Pacific’s VIRGINIA.  First the brochure unfolds to eight panels and then – pay attention here – the pages flipped up to reveal a portrait of the ship with multiple pages of plans and photos below.  No one expected the pages to flip up so inevitably they tore into the fold as they tried to turn the pages normally. 

The First Class plan opens to show large b&w photos of the Main Lounge, Smoking Room and Ballroom.  Flipping up reveals the AMERICA portrait at top with decks marked off and photos of the Cocktail Lounge and Promenade Deck below.  The upper panel is torn along the fold for three panels (about the average IMMC rip).  There are sixteen-pages inside.  Continuing with the photos – five different cabins, Sports Deck, Kennels, Children’s Play Room (spelled as two words), Shopping Center, Dining Room, Swimming Pool. Gymnasium, and Library/Writing Room.  Six decks are shown in color-coded detail. 

The Cabin Class plan opens to reveal large b&w photos of the Lounge, Dining Room, Game Deck, Smoking Room/Cocktail Bar, and Writing Room/Library.  Flipping up shows the AMERICA portrait at top and sample photos of four different cabins below.  Whomever originally owned this plan was impatient – the entire top panel is separated from the lower section.  Six pages show six decks’ worth of color-coded plans. 

The Tourist Class plan opens to show first the Lounge and Dining Room, and then the large ship portrait.  Tourist Class folks must have more patience (or manual dexterity) as the flip-up is not torn.  More photos show the Smoking Room, Children’s Playroom (spelled as one word), and four different cabins.  Five color-coded decks are shown. 

Good condition with the rips noted above.
