Cunard Line circa 1905 Vintage Travel Print
Circa 1905 view of an unnamed two funnel steamship “Passing the Needles,” Britain’s last point of land, based on a watercolour by prominent artist Odin Rosenvinge (1880-1957). The lithography was undertaken by the firm of Turner and Dunnett of Liverpool, who produced many of Cunard’s prints and posters. The original oak frame, approximately 39″ x 23″, has a black finish, popular during the Edwardian era, and is incised “Cunard Line” along the bottom. Small faults along the bottom of the poster have been sensibly covered and reinforced by acid free mat. Steamship and railway companies used these framed views of their ships and trains throughout their offices and stations. They also distributed them to larger travel firms, such as Cook & Sons, to promote their brand to prospective travelers. Ideal for the philatelist and travel enthusiast alike.
