This vintage poster was created for the Messageries Maritimes, which was a French merchant shipping company from 1851 until it merged with another company in 1977. It advertises an ocean route that went from Marseilles to Djibouti via East Africa and Madagascar. Jean des Gachons created the image in the 1950s and it was printed Paris. He is also known for many poster images of the Grand Prix and other auto races.
