VEENDAM: 1923 - Post-war interiors in color

Product Description

Holland America Line: A fold-out (12" by 16") interiors brochure issued in the late 1940s and reprinted in the early 1950s for the VEENDAM.

Looking at the Edwardian interiors you would never guess that in 1945 she was a partially sunk, burned-out hulk. "The regal S.S. VEENDAM is truly a ship of tradition," note HAL. "In years past, she and her sister-ships catered to travelers and vacationists with an exacting solicitude that was the subject of wide acclaim."

There are 12 color interior photos showing off interiors from a different era. For First Class, the Smoking Room, Library, Lounge, Dining Room, and a cabin are shown, all of which could have been from a liner of the 'teens.

Tourist Class views include the Dining Room, Lounge, and Smoking Room. The only modern touch to the décor was the new circular bar built around the stern mainmast. The zebra striped stools are quite a shock compared with the Edwardian dignity of the rest of the ship.

The VEENDAM took her maiden voyage in 1923. Originally designed to carry a large contingent of immigrants, her passenger capacity was modified several times over the years as laws and tastes changed.

She was docked in Rotterdam close to her fleetmate STATENDAM on the day in May 1940 when Germany invaded Holland. The STATENDAM was destroyed while the VEENDAM was spared, only to become an accommodation ship in Hamburg for German submarine crews. There she was hit by Allied bombs towards the end of the war. When English troops entered the port in May 1945 they discovered the ship partially sunk and burnt out. But the need for post-war ships was so great that the wreck was raised and towed to Amsterdam for rebuilding. By early 1947 she was ready to sail again.

Holland America sailed the VEENDAM only until 1953 when she was sent to the breakers.

Excellent condition.
