SSHSA's Virtual Museum

Welcome to the Steamship Historical Society of America (SSHSA) Virtual Museum. From here you can choose which gallery and exhibition you would care to browse. The works on display in the galleries represent just a portion of SSHSA's substantial collections. Exhibits are changed on a regular basis and we invite you to visit our Virtual Museum often to enjoy the latest galleries.

The SSHSA Virtual Museum is made possible by the annual support from The Family of Helen and Henry Posner, Jr. The museum presents special exhibits including maritime artwork, photographs, as well as highly collectible ocean liner posters focused on the maritime aspect of transportation.

When entering each gallery, you can view the individual images and read a brief description of the artwork. Click on an image to see an enlarged screen view and a description of the object's condition where available.

Enjoy your visit to the Steamship Historical Society of America Virtual Museum!

This growing collection of paintings, half-models, and maritime artwork by noteworthy artists from the 19th and 20th centuries is generously shared by the family of Helen and Henry Posner, Jr. and stewarded by SSHSA.

The Vincent M. Love Collection

This collection comprises framed lithographs, prints, photographs, books, promotional ephemera, VHS tapes, and preserved newspapers and clippings documenting ocean liners and companies, with a special focus on United States Lines, the White Star Line and, in particular, the sinking of the steamship Titanic in 1912.
