ORIENTAL ESMERALDA/CARNAVAL - 2 agency posters

Product Description

Orient Overseas Line: A set of two posters distributed to travel agencies in the late 1960s to promote the 'round the world service of the ORIENTAL ESMERALDA and ORIENTAL CARNAVAL, the former New Zealand Shipping Line sisters RANGITANE and RANGITOTO.

The first poster features a misty scene of a pond with pagodas and the tag line "Sea the Orient". The second shows a montage of a globe with a sunset on the ocean. The clever play-on-words continue with this tagline, "Sea the Globe". At the bottom of each poster is the line name, logo and a profile of former British ships. Each poster measures 24" by 36".

The ESMERALDA/CARNAVAL were refitted by Tung to carry 300 passengers in First Class, decreased from their original 436 Tourist Class lay-out. Tung promoted his new service just as the European and American lines were dropping their long haul voyages. You could board one of the sisters in Los Angeles and sail through the Panama Canal, down the east coast of South America, over to the coast of Africa and onto the Orient, across the Pacific and back to Los Angeles in four months' time, all for 7,500. Sadly it didn't last for long. The ships were old and when oil skyrocketed in 1973 they began losing money. Both were scrapped by 1976. These posters come from the late Richard Zink who was a key San Francisco travel agent back in the day.

Very good condition.
