Various: pre-war - 1920s American Mail Line "535" Class deck plans

Product Description

American Mail Line: A big foldout (22" by 33") deck plan brochure from the late 1920s for the American Mail Line fleet of "535" combo liners.

Four decks are shown in large-scale detail revealing both First and "Special" classes. While the décor certainly was not that of the ILE DE FRANCE, everything looks spacious and comfy for a long sea voyage.

Up top on Boat Deck there were a few cabins and a "Tea Room" with a fireplace. During those Prohibition Era voyages, you can bet more than "tea" was served, especially if the steward was properly tipped. Promenade Deck featured more First Class public rooms, a "swimming tank", a section of suites under the bridge, and a big box marked "motion picture machine". A Deck was filled with First Class staterooms, all with private baths. B Deck was mainly given over to the "Special Class". A few of those cabins even had private baths. All in all it looks like a comfortable way to sail through the tropics.

The Depression put an end to this service. By 1937 all the American Mail Line passenger fleet was laid up at Seattle. Most of the President liners served as troopships, and those that survived the war were scrapped in the 1950s. But the company sailed on with its freight service right up until the 1960s.

Good condition with moderate wear.
