A large, highly decorative large off-set print in vivid colours represents a luxury ocean liner S S Washington.
The ship was launched on August 20, 1932, and made the first voyage in 1933. Her ister ship S S Manhattan was one year older. The ships were the largest liners ever built in the United States and were in the 1930s known as a luxury connection between the US and Europe.
The print was hanging in an ocean-liner ticket office as an advertisement.
This version, printed in thick colours on paper mimicking the canvas, was made by a Hamburg based publishing house Franke & Scheibe, founded in 1885 and specialized in transportation publications.
