Original vintage poster from 1920, designed by British artist Montague Birrell Black (1889 - 1964). He produced many postcards and posters for the White Star Line throughout the 1920s. He also worked for other transport companies such as the Blue Star Line, London Underground and British Railways.
The Dominion Line had its roots in a company founded in 1870 called the Liverpool & Mississippi Steamship Company. The original route was between New Orleans and Liverpool, but that route was soon abandoned in favor of a Canadian route. In 1902, the Dominion Line was purchased by a large shipping conglomerate which included the White Star Line. From 1908 the new White Star-Dominion Line carried passengers and freight between Liverpool and Canada, and remained in operation until 1926, when the name was changed to the White Star Line Canadian Service.
9/10 - Patina, edge cracks and a fold at the bottom of the poster.
We only deal in original vintage posters from a single private collector who is an expert in the field, with one of the world's most impressive private collections of original vintage posters. All of the posters are the original lithographs from when they were created, which will be evident when you hold the original copies in your hand. You can clearly see the difference between a lithograph and an ordinary poster, and the paper on which the posters were printed is no longer made at all. However, you always have a full right of return, and we are happy to supply more pictures of the posters if you wish.
A frame is not included when you buy a poster from PlakatKunst. You can, however, buy a frame with special dimensions, which can be adapted perfectly to the poster's 63.5 x 102 cm. We always recommend museum glass for valuable posters like this, as the museum glass provides optimal protection against UV rays, and thus best suits the poster's beautiful colors.
