PRESIDENT HOOVER & PRESIDENT COOLIDGE - Large deluxe deck plan w/ interiors

Product Description

Dollar Steamship Line: A large fold-out (35" by 42") deck plan for the sister ships PRESIDENT COOLIDGE and PRESIDENT HOOVER from the mid-1930s.

One side contains photos of interiors while the flip side has detailed color-coded deck plans of all three classes. Six decks are shown.

Impressively, the sister ships boasted TWO outdoor swimming pools, surely a first for an American liner. First Class held 300 passengers. "Special Class" held around 120 and then down in the hold there were crowded conditions for 300 in Third.

Besides a color view of the Swimming Pool, black and white First Class photos show the Marine Tea Garden, Promenade Deck, a deluxe suite, Smoking Room, Continental Lounge, and an outside stateroom.

Special Class photos show the Dining Salon, Writing Room, and two basic cabins.

Third Class didn't rate photos.

The photos of the pool and Smoking Room bear special mention. But first a little history. Both ships sailed to the Far East for Dollar. On December 10, 1937, sailing in unfamiliar waters due to skipping Shanghai because of unrest, the 615' PRESIDENT HOOVER ran aground on a reef near Taiwan. The passengers and crew were put ashore on a little island and eventually were rescued. The ship was firmly stuck and eventually was destroyed on the reef, making it the largest American maritime loss up to that time.

The PRESIDENT COOLIDGE became a troop ship during the war. On October 26, 1942, while fleeing Japanese subs, the COOLIDGE entered the harbor at Espiritu Santo in the Vanuatu Islands, seeking shelter at an American naval base. While the captain knew of the refuge, he didn't know about the mines laid to protect the base. The PRESIDENT COOLIDGE hit one and sank in about 90 minutes. Fortunately, all but one of the thousands of people onboard were saved.

Today the ship is a popular dive spot. The Dive Aquamarine Santo web site has wonderful photos of the wreck. Glance at the Swimming Pool and Smoking Room photos in this plan and then go to the web site at http://www.aquamarinesanto.com/coolidge.html. Scroll through the dive photos and you will recognize the tile pattern from the pool and the ceramic sculpture from above the Smoking Room fireplace. Both are popular destinations on the wreck.

Good condition with a little separate at some of the folds.
