Pamphlet - 'Express Service Fares to Italy', Australia, Oceania & Neptunia, Lloyd Triestino Line, Jun 1955 Reg. No: HT 2610
- Folded pamphlet showing fares for Lloyd Triestino Liners Australia, Oceania and Neptunia effective from June 1955. 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'.
The three sister ships were pleasure cruisers that sailed from Trieste in Italy to Melbourne, Australia. Each had accommodation for 280 first class passengers, 120 second class and 392 third class with a crew of 236.
