Folded pamphlet showing sailing schedules for Lloyd Triestino Line ships Galileo and Marconi, launched in 1963. The ships voyaged from Genoa, Italy to Melbourne, stopping at Naples, Messina, Piraeus, Malaga, Las Palmas, Durban, Fremantle and Adelaide, and could carry up to 289 first class passengers and 1594 tourist class passengers.

It is part of a collection of 175 items of post-war ship memorabilia collected by John McKay. John began collecting shipping brochures as a boy through an interest in travel and later used some of the material in his professional capacity as a Geography and Social Studies teacher. He finally made a voyage himself in 1957-1958, to England to attend a scouting jamboree, although he ended up staying for 18 months. He remembers lots of Australians going over at that time, and references to Earls Court as 'Kangaroo Alley'.
