Life on the Ocean Wave collection

Collection of cruise ship ephemera

Relating to cruise ships, particularly the Cunard line, the Life on the Ocean Wave collection contains material from the 1960s to the present day. Daily programmes, newsletters, brochures and menus from well-known ships such as the Queen Mary and the Aquitania feature in the collection.

The Life on the Ocean Wave collection has been used in exhibitions in Special Collections, including at LJMU Light Night events and displayed at our Heritage Open Days. Academics have also used the collection to support teaching and learning in research methods.
