T/S Flavia ~ Original Brochure

The brochure on this page was produced by Cogedar Line when the T/S Flavia was originally completed back on October 1962. Thus it is the very first and the original brochure and thus very collectable and I am delighted that I retained my copy! I am now happy for the very first time to share it with you and trust that it will bring a great deal of happiness to many past passengers, for I know that it will bring back so many memories!

In closing, this is the back page

I trust you have enjoyed viewing the Flavia brochure, however I trust that you will realise that I have placed my personal copy, which is very special to me, online in good will and I am trusting that it will not be copied, which is really being stolen and used without my permission!
