(publisher's review copy)

Smith is a White Star line enthusiast and has gathered here three dozen postcards, several in colour, celebrating the liner RMS Adriatic, successor in name to the SS Adriatic of 1871. The company's 'official' postcards were sometimes commissioned from noted marine artists - there is one here by Norman Wilkinson. The internal views portray Edwardian luxury. Her first master was Edward Smith, later, fatefully, master of the Titanic.

An interesting collection which must summarise years of hunting down exhibits specific to this particular ship; a pleasant souvenir of a bygone age.
