Product Description
Canadian Pacific: A big plan for a big ship! This 1938 "Apartment Plan" for the EMPRESS OF BRITAIN measures 36" by 48"

The plan is so large you almost can let your fingers do the walking through these glorious decks. Eight are shown in color-coded splendor. To appeal to landlubbers, the cabins are called apartments. Even more unusual, the designers of the major public rooms are listed. On this ship you definitely would want to travel First Class. The amount of public room and cabin space for 465 passengers is huge. Tourist Class is an afterthought tacked onto the stern and Third Class is somewhere down below, not even worthy of a mention on the plan.

The EMPRESS OF BRITAIN had an wonderful mixture of traditional and modern interior design which is shown in the seventeen large b&w photos. The grand Mayfair Lounge was as traditional and as elegant as any on the Edwardian four-stackers. My favorite room, the Cathy Lounge, was a highly decorated Oriental take on Art Deco. Other rooms, such as the D Deck Entrance Hall with its Moorish fireplace or the Salle Jacques Cartier, were also grand designs. What an interesting ship!

Photos from First Class show the Writing Room and Library, Empress Room, Apartment 453, Apartment 522, Apartment 135, Salle Jacques Cartier, Sun Deck Tennis Court, Olympian Swimming Pool, Cathay Lounge, The Mall, Mayfair Room, Main Deck Foyer, and the Moorish Entrance Hall to Salle Jacques Cartier.

If you have read the war history of the ship, the largest passenger liner sunk in WW2, you'll find the Sun Deck Tennis Court photo somewhat eerie. For it was that exact spot where German bombs first hit the EMPRESS OF BRITAIN in October 1940 as she neared home with a load of soldiers and ex-pat families. The bombs crashed through the deck into the Mayfair Room below which was quickly turned into a blazing inferno. The fire spread throughout the midsection, trapping passengers and crew on one side or another. Thankfully, most were saved before the ship went down.

Very good condition with a few pin holes at the folds.
