An especially good, and rare, Royal Mail Lines poster, featuring a passenger on board the steamship RMS Andes. Built in Belfast, 1937–39, the Andes was requisitioned as a troop carrier during the Second World War. After returning to civilian duties in 1947, the ship operated the premier liner route between Southampton, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. By the mid-50s, when this poster was made, the Andes was more typically used for luxury cruising in the Mediterranean and elsewhere. A higher resolution image is available for viewing on request.
