Giant RMS Queen Mary poster, 1930s
Cunard White Star, 'America this Year! by RMS Queen Mary'
A very scarce and gigantic four-sheet original Art Deco billboard poster over 100 inches wide, used to promote Cunard White Star Line’s transatlantic service launched in 1936, on R.M.S Queen Mary. The poster is float mounted in a plain black lacquer frame, and glazed with lightweight Plexiglas.
Size: 110 x 55 inches (280 x 140 cm).
The R.M.S Queen Mary was built along with her sister ship R.M.S Queen Elizabeth as a response to the superliners being built by French and German companies in the early 1930s, and ran the twice-weekly express service to New York from Cherbourg and Southampton.
RMS Queen Mary was the flagship of the by-then renamed Cunard Line until October 1946 when she was replaced in that role by R.M.S Queen Elizabeth.
