Maritime Posters - part 3

This series features maritime or nautical posters from between the 1880s to the 1950s, many published by the famous shipping lines of the day like Canadian Pacific, Cunard White Star, and the Orient line, many illustrated by well-known graphic artists of the day. Perhaps the most well-known is Adolphe Mouron Cassandre, whose posters from the 1930s have become collectable classics. If the name is not familiar, the posters will be.

This is part 3 of a 5 - part series on maritime posters:

The “RMS Empress of Britain” was an ocean liner built between 1928 and 1931 by John Brown shipyard in Scotland and owned by Canadian Pacific Steamship Company.
In her time, she was the largest, fastest, and most luxurious ship between England and Canada. She was torpedoed on 28 October 1940 by a U-32 German U-Boat and sank. At 42,348 gross tons, she was the largest liner lost during the Second World War and the largest ship sunk by a U-boat:
