This is an original authentic trans-Atlantic liner poster, for the "Dominion Line" featuring an illustration of SS Canada. It was made for display in "Great Southern and Western Railway" stations, advertising the line's trans-Atlantic schedule for autumn and winter 1900. The poster has added historical interest because these sailing never, in fact, happened.
The SS Canada was taken out of service in mid-1900 to ship troops to Southern Africa to fight in the Boer War and the services advertised on this poster were cancelled as a result.
