Original vintage cruise travel poster for Norwegian America Line featuring great artwork by Frederick J. Hoertz (1889-1978) depicting the Stavangerfjord ocean liner at sea with smoke rising from its striped funnels into the orange glowing sky with flags flying and smaller boats sailing alongside, the land visible in the distance and the stylised text with the logo on the border below advertising: Twin Screw Mail and Passenger Service S.S. Stavangerfjord and S.S. Bergensfjord New York - Norway - Sweden - Denmark - Finland and Other European Countries. Founded in 1910, Norwegian America Line / Den Norske Amerikalinje operated transatlantic cargo and passenger shipping services; the company was bought by Cunard Line in 1984 then sold to Wilh. Wilhelmsen Holding in 1995. The cruise liner SS Stavangerfjord was built in the UK and launched in 1918 to operate passenger services on the transatlantic route; she was used as a depot ship by the Nazi German occupiers during World War Two and, before being scrapped in Hong Kong in 1964, was used as a hotel for the 1964 Summer Olympics held in Tokyo Japan. The cruise liner SS Bergensfjord was built in the UK and launched in 1913 to operate passenger services on the transatlantic route; she was used as a troop transport ship by the British Ministry of War during WWII and sold to Panama Lines in 1946 to operate the emigration route to South America and passenger services between Italy and Central and Northern America before being bought by Home Lines (1952-1953) then Zim Israel Navigation Co. Ltd. for the Israel to New York route; she was scrapped in Italy in 1959. Good condition, restored tears, small restored paper loss in margin, backed on linen.
