Roger Chapalet created this vintage travel poster for the Messageries Maritimes, which was a French merchant shipping company. It was the largest French fleet to carry passengers in the years between WWII and the rise of the international airlines. This image depicts the ship “La Bourdonnais,” in the 1950s, which carried passengers and cargo along the Indian Ocean line (Marseille, East Coast of Africa, Madagascar, La Réunion).
This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.
