The history of the passenger liner is traced from the days of Brunel to after the Second World War. Two hundred artists' postcards from the author's comprehensive collection illustrate in full colour the ships plying the 'Blue Riband' routes and sailing to Canada, the South Atlantic, India, the Indies. Australasia and the Far East. Famous names like Lusitania, Mauretania and Titanic are illustrated here alongside other less well-known vessels recalling bygone days of leisured and luxury travel, many of them lost in disasters or in the service of their countries in the two world wars.

Postcards Ocean Liners

Stunning postcards reveal the history of the ill-fated Lusitania Using rare period postcards from his personal collection, maritime researcher Eric Sauder tells the history of Cunard's legendary Lusitania from construction to her tragic sinking in 1915 by a German torpedo. Lusitania was the largest liner in the world when she was built and was also technologically superior to anything that then existed, setting the standard for every transatlantic liner to follow. Her story is one of supreme triumph yet also devastating loss. Through often previously unpublished postcards, this gripping maritime story is brought to life. These vivid postcards offer a fascinating glimpse into every part of the ship's career and loss, including construction, fitting out, trials, service, interiors, people, sinking, graves, and propaganda.
