Item: Framed Photograph

Age: 1960

Construction: Wood, Paper

Dimensions: 14 1/4" x 12 1/4" x 1 1/2" Deep

Condition: Very good pre-owned vintage condition. Frame has a few nicks and scuffs. Photograph is in wonderful condition. Please see photos. 

Details: Framed early aerial photograph of the famed SS United States at dock next to her sister ship the SS America. The ship as seen in the foreground is easily identified by the two stacks and eleven lifeboats. Acquired from the home of the tugboat captain who escorted the ship out of her berth on her maiden voyage. 

Built between 1950 and 1951, the now retired SS United States is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the United States, and the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction. The ship retains the Blue Riband for the highest average speed since her maiden voyage in 1952, and still holds the title today.

A portion of all proceeds will benefit the SS United States Conservancy and their mission to "ensure that America's Flagship inspires and endures for generations to come". Please see our other SS United States items.
