From 16 May 2014

This new display will feature 14 posters dating from 1888 to 1980, advertising Liverpool shipping companies. Many of these posters have never been on display before.

Image of PosterThey are a record of the style, glamour and excitement of a long-gone era when sailing by liner was the only way travel. Starting out as simple bills of sailing, over time shipping company advertisements developed into highly designed full colour posters that reflected the changing needs and aspirations of passengers.

One of the more colourful and exotic posters in the exhibition is from 1935. Blue Star Lineís Arandora Star to South Africa, Java, Malaya, Ceylon and Egypt. The poster depicts the vessel berthed alongside palm trees swaying in a tropical paradise.
