The German-born Goldsteen designed several posters for the Dutch Railways, often promoting North Sea ferry services between Harwich and the Hook of Holland. The service was jointly marketed with the British London & North Eastern Railway. This Anglo-Dutch co-operation is highlighted here by sailors dressed in their national flags, carrying parcels labelled ‘LNER’ and ‘Zeeland Steamship Company’.
