If you don't see your favorite liner, there is a reason. To be included, these ships had to weigh in at at least 10,000 gross tons, carrying at least 100 passengers. Exceptions have been made, and they are noted within.




Illustrations credited with a (pv) means a private collection where the person does not wish to be named. Those who wish to be named, will be named. Those with an (mc) is from my collection. As the broad strokes get filled in, proper citations will show up in the text, and if you feel I've erred, show me your notes, and I'll show you mine.
