A very rare original vintage cruise poster issued by Norddeutscher Lloyd Bremen to promote Polar journeys and sailing in the Norwegian fjords.
This early poster depicts a steamship in a Norwegian fjord surrounded by mountains and Atlantic puffins sitting on a mountain ledge.
The NDL had its first cruise to Norway in 1887 and continued regularly voyages in Norwegian waters from 1908. The last German Nordic trip before the First World War was carried out with the NDL steamer SS Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm who in early August 1914 had to end the journey in Odda earlier than planned.
Very rare! In good shape, mounted on Japan paper. Signs of ageing, browning, dirt.
