MONTANA: 1874 - Advertising card w/ deck plan & color lithograph

Product Description
Guion Line - From the 1870s, an advertising card featuring a color portrait on one side and the cabin plan of the MONTANA on back.

MONTANA and sister DAKOTA were supposed to be Blue Riband winners with high-pressure boilers. But with boiler tubes blowing up and injuring firemen during her trial runs, the faulty machinery was ripped out and replaced by a lower-pressure version. Her speed dropped, much to the disappointment of the Guion Line.

The plan on back shows the thirty state rooms, each of which held two people. At the stern were the toilets and midships appears to be the saloon. The color lithograph on front shows the MANHATTAN of 1866, Guion Line's first ship.

As was all too typical for the era, the MONTANA met a tragic ending, stranding off Wales in 1880. Ironically, her sister DAKOTA was wrecked in almost the same spot three years earlier.

Good condition with a clipped upper right corner and some soiling.
