About The Poster: This lovely image was recently purchased in Italy from a collector who is as crazy about old paper and ephemera as I am. He has been known to purchase the archives of both well known and unknown artists and printers... his warehouse is like Paradise Lost: every nook and cranny full of treasures ... like this one: from the archives of a printer who specialized in the production of games and ephemera for children, a colorful image from 1935 showing the SS Normandie - a ship, which, at the time, was considered the ne plus ultra of ocean-going liners. "SS Normandie was an ocean liner built in Saint-Nazaire, France for the French Line Compagnie Générale Transatlantique. She entered service in 1935 as the largest and fastest passenger ship afloat; she is still the most powerful steam turbo-electric-propelled passenger ship ever built.
