Welcome on board ‘Adriatic’( II) – White Star Line wonder ship! Explore this magnificent steamship through old picture postcards, many of them rare and unpublished. Journey back to 1907 to glimpse Adriatic II as the White Star flagship and travel through her eventful career to her last days as a veteran cruise liner. The postcards featured are a glorious mixture of artist impressions and real photos from the collection of historian Ben Smith, gathered over more than 30 years. ‘Adriatic’s beautifully proportioned design, high standards of accommodation, and great popularity over more than a quarter of a century, make her a notable vessel. It is hoped that not only White Star buffs, but all ship enthusiasts will enjoy this picture tribute to one of the company’s most successful ships which helped to inspire the famous ‘Olympic’ class.
