Book - MS San Marco & MS Giorgio, Adriatica Venezia, 1964 Document Reg. No: HT 7957

Summary:
Book issued by Adriatica Venezia, 1964. It is a travel information book for passengers travelling on the ships MS San Marco and MS Giorgio. It is part of a collection of 175 items of post-war ship memorabilia collected by John McKay. John began collecting shipping brochures as a boy through an interest in travel and later used some of the material in his professional capacity as a Geography and Social Studies teacher. He finally made a voyage himself in 1957-1958, to England to attend a scouting jamboree, although he ended up staying for 18 months. He remembers lots of Australians going over at that time, and references to Earls Court as 'Kangaroo Alley'.
