Steamshipsby A. Schindeler
Voyage Au Tour Du Monde
Travel poster with ships and railway flanking the globe and ocean.This is one of the most magnificent travel posters ever created. It advertises a Round the World tour by ship and railroad. The globe gives us part of the itinerary: from the right, the ship comes through the Red Sea and Mediterranean, by railway from Marseille to LeHavre, then by ship to New York, where the railroad, shown at bottom of the design, takes you to San Francisco either by Chicago or New Orleans, and then by ship again across the Pacific. The two ships which flank the globe are the ""La Touraine"" and the ""Australien."" Adding to the color of the design are the flags on both sides.
