Notes NOTES: The TSS (Turbine Steam Ship) Tuscania (or 'SS 595') was a luxury liner of the Cunard subsidiary Anchor Line. It was built between 1919 and 1921. It was later purchased by Greek shipping magnate Leonidas Goulandris (1939), who re-named it the 'Nea Hellas'. The interior furnishings were executed by Waring & Gillow, a noted English furniture manufacturer.
