This is a particularly rare 3rd class accommodation plan for White Star Line's MV Georgic from May 1932, in preparation for her entry into service just a month later on 25th June 1932.
Apart from light staining, the plan is in excellent condition, with no rips or tears and has some fascinating photos of her interiors, etc. A superb collectible at a bargain price!
Georgic was the last ship built by Harland & Wolff for the White Star Line, as the running mate of her sister, MV Britannic, following the cancellation of the 1,000ft Oceanic (III). In 1933, she replaced Olympic on the Southampton-New York run whilst the latter underwent her final refit.
Although not the largest or fastest Liners of their time, Georgic and Britannic proved popular, and were in the early-1930s the two most profitable ships in White Star Line's fleet, partly due to their lower running costs and more affordable ticket prices compared to the traditional steamships. They helped keep the company afloat financially during the Great Depression.
Georgic gave great service during both World War II and the Korean War, but following her return to commercial service, proved unreliable and in 1956, was scrapped in Faslane, Scotland.
