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. Though also the name of a country, "Laos" was an ocean liner in the company's fleet, built in 1954. It had two sister ships named "Cambodia" and "Vietnam." They had luxury first class cabins, tourist class rooms, and also carried cargo on their month-long voyages to Indo-China and the Far East, starting at Port Said, Egypt and traveling to Aden (or Djibouti), Bombay, Colombo, Singapore, Saigon, Hong Kong, Kobe (eastbound) and Yokohama.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
