This is a very rare original vintage Union-Castle Line poster promoting journeys to South & East Africa. A rendering of a beautiful African woman in front of typical South African farmhouses of the time.
The Union-Castle Line was a British shipping line that operated a fleet of passenger liners and cargo ships between Europe and Africa from 1900 to 1977. It was formed from the merger of the Union Line and Castle Shipping Line.
Text on the poster: "Union-Castle Line South & East Africa - Weekly Royal Mail Service to South & East Africa."
A wonderful poster in very good condition. Some slight signs of folds. Mounted on linen.
