CARMANIA: 1905 - Tourist 3rd deck plan 1929

Product Description

Cunard Line:  A 24” by 34” tissue deck plan dated June 1929 for the CARMANIA.  The plan covers Tourist Third Class, recently added to the ship to take advantage of the tourist boom to Europe. 

Five decks are shown.  The accommodations are tight little cabins squeezed eight across.  A few are located on C Deck with most further down on E and F decks.  All the facilities are on D Deck.  It would be a difficult hike in the middle of a stormy night to go to the bathroom.  Black and white photos shows the Dining Saloon, Lounge, Winter Garden, and a cabin.  At top is a portrait of CARMANIA handsomely done up in black and red.  

This old ship from 1905 would have been well-known to the passenger of 1929.  For in 1914 she fought to the death the CAP TRAFALGAR off the Brazilian coast.  The German ship was sunk but not before inflicting heavy damage to the Cunarder.  The battle proved that lightly protected civilian ships did not make good armed merchant cruisers.  If passengers did not recall the battle, a bronze plaque mounted onboard reminded them.  

Us ship fans also remember CARMANIA because of her experimental steam turbines.  The ship was faster and more fuel efficient than conventionally-powered sister CARONIA and convinced Cunard to make the switch. 

Very good condition.
