Postcards of Oriana the Liner

Just for your information; Page 2 contains postcards of the Oriana which were sold on board the ship in an envelope and were released by the Orient Line. Whilst pages 3 and 4 contain a selection of photographs of this great Liner and cruise ship!

I am sorry that the size of the postcards and photographs are rather on the small side, but these pages were created around 2008 or 2009, thus a good 20 years ago, and although I have updated the pages somewhat, but due to my age, health and poor eyesight it would be too much to tackle anymore work, apart from slowly updating all twelve of the SS Oriana Web-pages.
