The Hamburg-Amerika Linie [Line] was a transatlantic shipping enterprise established in Hamburg, Germany in 1847 and operated through 1970. This poster promoted a world tour in 1904 via passenger ship. The poster reads "Time travel around the world." In order to make the various destinations more attractive and interesting, the artist used an eclectic group of figure interlaced through the spokes of the ship's wheel. The flags and the different people shown on the poster are a visual representation of the cultures that would be encountered on the tour. Some of the many countries are the USA, China, and Japan. Although the company is no longer in business, it was well known during its time. Little is known about the artist.

This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

  • 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.
