Presented here is an early and exceptionally rare poster dating back to the 1920s, created to promote the DFDS sea routes, which provided a convenient 22-hour voyage from Esbjerg, Denmark, to Harwich, England.
This vintage poster showcases a captivating Art Deco design that beautifully captures the essence of maritime travel. It features a stately steamship sailing gracefully towards the viewer, with its striking red and black funnel towering against the backdrop of a serene sea. Notably, the poster incorporates the nautical convention of using red and green lights on the ship. The red light signifies the vessel's port (left) side, while the green light designates the starboard (right) side.
Despite its age, this poster remains in remarkable condition. It bears only a light horizontal fold and is otherwise excellently preserved. This poster is a testament to an era of sea travel, offering a glimpse into the allure and elegance of journeys across the North Sea with DFDS.
