INDEPENDENCE: 1951 - Good-bye INDY: 1969 cruises that never took place

Product Description

American Export Lines: A twelve-page brochure promoting the INDEPENDENCE's cruises for 1969. Too bad they never happened. This brochures ended up to the very last one from American Export.

Of course there is shameless hype: "Our resort, the S.S. INDEPENDENCE. An uncommon way to vacation. The only way to resort to San Juan and St. Thomas - the whole Caribbean."

Cruises are listed from January 4 to November 21, 1969. The INDY had just undergone a major retrofit which added bathrooms to all the Tourist Class cabins. She returned to New York in time for a December 1968 Christmas cruise, but the voyage was canceled because of a longshoremen's strike. Instead of "serenely veering south for the Indies", the INDEPENDENCE joined sister CONSTITUTION in lay-up, never to sail again for American Export.

Notice the sunburst design on the cover? It mimics the huge pop-art sunbursts painted onto the sides of INDY in the spring of 1968. Fortunately, after a few months they were painted over.

Excellent condition.
