LAKONIA: 1929 - Disaster newspapers & magazines

Product Description

Greek Line:  A comprehensive collection of three period magazines and four newspapers relating to the LAKONIA disaster.  

This former Dutch liner was on a Christmas cruise out of Southampton to the Canary Islands in December 1963.  During a fancy dress ball the ship caught fire and in the ensuing disaster one-hundred and twenty people lost their lives.  Few of the crew spoke English and there was great confusion onboard, including an order for passengers to gather in the dining room on the lowest deck where they became trapped.  

Of special interest are the newspapers as they are full issues, not clippings.  Included are the Boston Globe from December 23, 1963, and from December 24 the New York Times, Boston Herald, and Record American.  All feature front-page banner-headlines and photos of the disaster. 

Providing more in-depth coverage are three news magazines.  LIFE Magazine for January 3, 1964, features a color photo of the burning LAKONIA on the cover while inside is a twelve-page article with many photos and a riveting description of the disaster.  The Illustrated London News of January 4, 1964, covers the story in two page with photographs.  It seems skimpy considering most passengers were British.  While not a cover story, Germany’s QUICK Magazine of January 12, 1964, went into detail with six pages including pre-fire photos of the LAKONIA and a two-page ship sketch showing how the fire spread.
