  • This vintage travel poster was published for the Messageries Maritime Shipping Company in France circa 1950.  It was a merchant shipping company from 1851 to 1977. In its beginning it operated merchant shipping routes to the Middle East. It was the first French transatlantic line to use steam ships. During the Colonial period, the company expanded due to France's interest in the South Pacific. As this poster suggests, by the 1950s its ships sailed across the globe, shipping freight and passengers to the Mid and Far East as well the Americas.
