This lovely smaller travel poster depicts the ocean liner ship the “Mauretania” in NY harbor, with New York City in the background. Printed at the very bottom of this poster reads “R.M.S. Mauretania Cunard Line”.
There is an extensive wiki page on this ship here. Wiki quotes: "RMS Mauretania was launched on 28 July 1938 at the Cammell Laird yard in Birkenhead, England and was completed in May 1939. This second Mauretania was the first ship built for the newly formed Cunard White Star company following the merger in April 1934 of the Cunard and White Star lines. The new Mauretania's smart and stylish accommodation marked a further enhancement to the standards of cabins, public rooms and general facilities provided for passengers of all grades by Cunard White Star Line. During the Second World War she travelled 540,000 miles and carried over 340,000 troops. Mauretania’s final voyage was a Mediterranean cruise which left New York on 15 September 1965. It was announced that on her return to Southampton, Mauretania would be withdrawn from service and sold. She arrived at Southampton on 10 October 1965 and had already been sold to the British Iron & Steel Corporation."
