Various Ships - Port Line interiors brochure from 1958

Product Description
Port Line: A 20 page "Handbook of Information" from the late 1950s.

While the text covers the usual info stuff - where to buy cigars, reserve a deck chair, or play a piano - there is also the unusual. Such as, "STRIKES, Etc. The Company will not be responsible for detention or loss of any description arising from labour disputes, strikes, lockouts, war, or warlike operations." Such was the state of the British (and American) labor relations in the 1950s.

Of great interest are the unidentified interior photos. The Cocktail Bar and Lounge could be from any budget hotel of the 1950s while the Reading and Writing Room looks a little more upscale with handsome sycamore paneling. The Dining Room looks pleasant enough, while two cabin photos reveal simple but modern furniture.

The opening photo is of the PORT INVERCARGILL which took its maiden voyage in 1958. These 1950s Port Line combo ships carried 12 passengers and had handsome, classic lines. The PORT INVERCARGILL was caught in the Suez Canal during the 1967 war and was destroyed. The Port Line ceased to exist in the early 1980s and the ships featured here mostly went to the scrappers in the 1970s. Two Port Line ships exist today - the PORT MELBOURNE and PORT SYDNEY. These two Harland and Wolff vessels of 1955 were converted in the mid-1970s into the luxury cruise ships DANAE and DAPHNE. You'll find brochures on them on Nautiques from the many lines (including Costa) that operated them.
