In 1930 Union-Castle produced this illustrated brochure, offering a glimpse of the beautiful and luxurious interiors of five of the passenger ships. For brand-new sister-ships, the Winchester and Warwick Castles, the Company tried something new, and hired a group of models to populate the public spaces. The models disported themselves in various suitable outfits in the First Class accommodation, with token appearances in the Winchester’s Second and Third Class lounges. Many of the interiors in all five of these ships would not have seemed out of place in a large country house or one of the top London hotels.
