About the collection

This is a collection of ocean liner and other nautical ephemera. The Ephemera Files (an ongoing collection) contain single items or small collections of souvenirs or material relating to commercial enterprise, usually without provenance information. Items such as brochures, programs, menus, tickets, blotters, advertisements, passenger lists and luggage tags will be found in these collections. Ocean liner companies such as the Cunard Line, White Star Line, United States Line, Hamburg Amerika Line, North German Lloyd Line, and the Italian Line are particularly well represented.
