Product Description

Cunard Line & White Star Line – Three large (10” by 12”) reprints from Britain’s Imperial War Museum showing MAURETANIA, AQUITANIA, and OLYMPIC in World War One dazzle paint.  

The ships were requisitioned as troop transports and it was felt that the bold designs would help disguise the ships at sea.  But it ended up all gray was harder for U-boat captains to see through binoculars so the scheme was abandoned and the ships repainted.  

The stamp of the Imperial War Museum is on back, along with erroneous pencil comments.  The anonymous writer identifies MAURETANIA as LUSITANIA and the date of the AQUITANIA photo as 1940.  Wrong and wrong! 

Very good condition with a 1” tear on the left side of the MAURE image.
