Various: pre-war - 5 American ferry & coastal brochures 1940s

Product Description

Ship History:  A collection of five brochures from the 1940s advertising voyages on mostly-forgotten American ferry and coastal lines. 

A Colonial Line fold-out from 1940 promotes the New York-Boston route of the ARROW and COMET.  Inside are deck plans, interior and destination photos, schedules, and rates.  

Deck plans are also included in a 1947 fold-out for the Norfolk and Washington, D.C. Steamboat Company.  They operated the steamer DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. 

Also sailing out of Norfolk was the Virginia Ferry Corporation which carried passengers and cars across the Chesapeake Bay to the Delmarva Peninsula.  Motorists on their way north to New York and beyond could then avoid the congestion of Richmond, Washington, and Baltimore.  The company operated two ferries, DEL-MAR-VA and PRINCESS ANNE. 

Clyde-Mallory Lines sailed the coastal route between New York, Miami, and Houston.  A 1940 fold-out provides sailings for the ALGONQUIN, SHAWNEE, SEMINOLE, and IROQUOIS. 

Lastly, on the Great Lakes the famous C&B Lines offered one-days cruises from Chicago to Benton Harbor on the CITY OF GRAND RAPIDS.  The year is 1944 so C&B hits a patriotic theme – “Sunshine and Health help Wartime Work” and “Save Wartime Gas and Tires”.
