Ocean Liner and Travel Brochures

Ocean Liner and Travel Brochures

The GG Archives presents a fabulous collection of Ocean Liner and Travel Brochures from the 1800s through the 1950s. Many are not only rare but offer a unique glimpse of passenger accommodations for ocean travel, often profusely illustrated with photographs and other illustrations.

The Steamship and Ocean Liner brochures, published from the late 1800s through the 1960s, offered a unique look into the accommodations, voyages, and life on board the ships. The brochures often captured the ships' unique interiors from all classes' perspectives, including first, second, tourist third cabin, and third class.

A few of our most popular brochures include the 1912 brochure on the SS France of the CGT-French Line; the 1907 White Star Line brochure that covered fleet, history, and services; a 1922 brochure on the famous RMS Majestic of the White Star Line, a 1908 Allan Line brochure on their second cabin accommodations; and, a 1937 brochure on the ocean liner Normandie of the French Line.
