It unfolds to 20" by 21" and has eight pages, meaning that your arms are spread open 40" to take it all in. What glamour!

A dozen years earlier this trio was introduced as Panama Pacific's PENNSYLVANIA, VIRGINIA, and CALIFORNIA for coast-to coast service through the Panama Canal. But Panama Pacific floundered in the late 1930s. The U.S. Government took the ships, modernized them by knocking off a funnel, and created American Republics Line to provide First Class travel to South America. Moore McCormack operated the ships.
