Product Description

How do I sum up the event that I consider to be without doubt the biggest in Cunard’s post-war period?  I suppose it really can’t be done.  So I will just let this superb Coronation Cruise passenger list speak for itself.  This is Cunard’s finest passenger list cover and is in exquisite royal purple flocked velvet.  Only a few of these must survive.  This is just the third that I have had since I began collecting for RMS Caronia nearly 20 years ago.  An interesting tidbit is that a passenger on this trip was Mrs. JD Wrather (Bonita Granville Wrather), whose husband’s company later went on in the early 1980’s to manage the Queen Mary in Long Beach.  This list is in very good condition and is tied with a silk cord.
