A great art deco advertisement poster from The East Asiatic Company portraying six different passengers ships bounding for all corners of the world!
Each ship is beautifully drawn each with very fine details such as the lifeboats, ship names and flags. The six ships each have different destinations: Australia, China/Japan, New York, Pacific Straits, Bangkok and India. Yes - this was indeed the heydays for seafaring passenger transportation only a decade before breakthrough of commercial airliners.
The East Asiatic Company Ltd. traces its origins back to 1884 when the founder of the Company, Captain H.N. Andersen, started a trading and shipping business between Thailand and Denmark. The Company was formally registered in Denmark in 1897 and from this date on it has pursued a worldwide business within trading, shipping and industry.
This is a great nostalgic and detail rich poster which reminds of a global world from the mid century when ships use to rule the world.
Thanks a lot for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
