Various: pre-war - 1926 witty Cunard brochure

Product Description

Cunard Line:  A delightful, twenty-four page booklet from 1926 full of witty stories and amusing illustrations.  I believe the artist is Anson Dyer (1976-1962) who also worked in animation and was promoted as the British Walt Disney.

Each page has Anson's drawings of snooty passengers, naughty children, put-upon stewards, and mermaids chasing ships.  Here are a few of the vignettes:

"The habit of cramming a passenger's body at bed-time into a hard and inadequate wooden tray is sternly frowned up in the Cunard Line.  In a Cunarder you may sleep like a fairy princess in the softest of beds, tucked up by a steward (or stewardess, as the case may be) and rewarded by an extra large chocolate if you have not splashed in your bath."

Or:

"What makes a civilized person homesick?  Exile from his Club?  The absence of his wife?  No rain?  Possibly, to some extent, but chiefly the loss of his daily paper!  The Cunard Line put that right long ago.  News comes ceaselessly sparked and crackling down our wireless masts to be collected by real printer's devils and printed on genuine machines ... If you've committed a murder or robbed a bank before coming on board, you can read all about it next morning as you absorb your daily dose."
