Moore McCormack, often known as Mooremack, ran many ships from the U.S. to South America and has origins from 1913. Their prosperity ran highest in the aftermath of WW2. In the 1920`s they were known for their commercial Steamship Corporation, when they acquired US Shipping Board steamers and service. The operations to South America were run with chartered vessels. By the picture in this poster we can see that Mooremack is advertising for cruises to Rio de Janeiro in the 1950-60`s.
This is a beautiful old travel poster with the Moore McCormack graphic logo on bottom, and an abstract view of Rio including the famous Christ the Redeemer statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world. A great old piece.
