Dinner menu from the S.S. Matsonia, while it was enroute from San Francisco to Honolulu on July 7, 1959, that features nice cover art by Louis Macouillard. The S.S. Matsonia was one of the four luxury liners in Matson's 'White Fleet', which were designed by William Francis Gibbs and also included SS Malolo, SS Mariposa and SS Lurline. Matsonia was identical to Mariposa and very similar to Lurline.

Louis Macouillard (1913-1987) was an acclaimed watercolorist, known for his marine and travel themed work. He was a graduate of the Art Students League of New York and the California Guild of Arts and Crafts.

"You hear a kindly, fuzzy haired Fijian roar with laughter as he plays a sharp game of cricket. And you find it hard to believe that his grandfather was a fierce barbarian. You see in Suva a modern capitol of British Oceania."

Price: $40.00
