It can of course be seen that this poster was not printed yesterday, but there is not a finger to put on the stand of the poster.

We do not know the year when this poster was published, but the poster shows a beautiful ship in the Sound, which looks like an EAC (East Asian Company) ship from the 1920s. In the background is the famous Kronborg Castle with the Danish flag. Kronborg is one of Northern Europe's most beautiful Renaissance castles and has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is world famous as the Castle of Hamlet and Shakespeare.

Aktieselskabet Det Østasiatiske Kompagni, ØK in everyday speech was a trading company founded by HN Andersen in 1897. In 1970, the company was Scandinavia's largest company in terms of turnover, and when the company was at its peak in the 1970s, it had more than 40,000 employees. Unfortunately, the oil crises of the 1970s hit EAC hard. In 1981, the company had a debt of several billion which resulted in a series of divestments. In 1993, EAC sold all shipping activities to Maersk. In 2014, there was only one international moving business left - Santa Fe Relocation, Santa Fe Group from 2015.
