Farrell Lines Incorporated was founded in 1948 by sons of James Augustine Farrell, the president of US Steel. It was previously known as American South African Lines (ASAL) as it provides regular passenger and cargo lines between New York and South Africa stopping at Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Durban, and Lourenço Marques (Maputo) in Mozambique. The passenger lines were well-equipped and nicely furnished with the capacity of approximately 180 passengers. This poster is an advertising poster by Farrell Lines to attract customers to book a voyage to South Africa.

The image, created by an anonymous artist, displays some of the activities available on a Farrell Lines cruise ship. It was a long travel period from New York to South Africa but it is portrayed as a pleasure trip.
