REPUBLIC: 1907 - Deluxe 1931 cruise brochure w/ plans & interiors

Product Description

United States Lines:  A deluxe, twenty-four page brochure for West Indies cruises in early 1931 on the ex-German liner REPUBLIC.  These voyages were the swan song for the REPUBLIC’s passenger service as shortly after she became a troop transport. 

Considering the ship was long-in-the-tooth and excess capacity in the depths of the Depression, USL fluffed up her role: “This winter, firmly established as the Queen of the Spanish Main ... the REPUBLIC will sally forth FIVE TIMES to embellish and add lustre to a title so richly deserved.” 

Eight pages provide travelogue, sailing schedules, and a route map.  The final pages are a gem for ship-lovers.  Two fold-outs, one as long as forty-four inches, provide detailed views of six decks.  On back of each are b&w interior photos showing design cues from the early 1900: Promenade Deck, Social Hall, Smoking Room, Main Staircase, Writing Room, Gymnasium, and a two-berth cabin.  

The ship  first sailed as Hamburg American Line’s PRESIDENT GRANT.  She was seized by the U.S. in 1917 to become a troop transport.  In 1924 USL introduced her as the transatlantic REPUBLIC.  In 1931 she went back to troopship use, a role she played until the scrappers in the 1952.
