ORCADES: 1948 - Deluxe interiors brochure from 1954

Product Description
Orient Line:  A deluxe sixteen-page interiors brochure from 1954 filled with photos of First Class.  The text is an imaginary letter from "Prunella" to "Caroline" extolling the virtues of a ORCADES voyage. 

The ship was the first of three successively larger sister built for Orient Line after WW2.  At the time of her launch her most unusual feature was her amidships bridge that "Prunella" says "gives the impression of a battleship's Control Tower."  The mounting of the bridge near the funnel opened up space for an Arena up on Games Deck overlooking the bow.  It, and many other First Class areas are shown in this brochure.  Other photos include the Dining Room (Prunella marvels, "… in the hottest weather the Dining Room is always cool, something to do with science called 'Air Conditioning'"), Lounge, Ballroom, Bamboo Room Café (showing Douglas Annand's painting "The Kangaroo Hunt"), a la carte restaurant, Tavern, Galleries, two cabins, and several aerial ship views.  Each page also has a smaller photo of a crew member at work. The interiors look modern, streamlined, and sophisticated, without the jarring juxtaposition of wild patterns as found on competing P&O liners.  The covers are a fine smooth stock.

Very good condition with a fold down the center.
