Straits, China, Japan by Peninsular & Oriental (c1928)

One of the highlights of this exhibition is this wonderful stone lithograph poster for the Peninsular & Oriental shipping line printed in England around 1928 and boasting the company’s “Luxurious Modern Steamers” of “14,500 to 17,000 tons” on which travelers can be transported to the Straits, China and Japan. The poster features a beautifully executed image of a dreamy and faraway China; where in the foreground women and children ride on a wheelbarrow pushed by a strong coolie, and in the background the local people go about their daily activities before distinctive traditional Chinese architecture.
