Say bon voyage to your problems every day when you hang this industrial steamship painting. Taking a vacation now and then is good for the soul but once or twice a year sometimes is just not enough. If you’ve ever taken a cruise on a steamship you know how good it feels to wave goodbye to family, friends as you part ways at the port. But now you can relive that feeling every day when you hang an industrial steamship painting in your favorite room of the house.
Industrial Steamship Painting
After World War II, the largest passenger fleet of steamships was operated by the French company Messageries Maritimes. The company built combination passenger and cargo ocean liners in the early 1950’s that carried tourists and cargo to ports all over the world. The steamship in this painting traveled from Antwerp, Belgian to the Far East. First class accommodations were quite luxurious with a drawing room, smoking room, card room, bar, dining room and even a swimming pool. Ahead of it’s time, there were thirty four first class staterooms with private verandas. Tourist class had a small lounge with a dining room. And third class accommodations were designed as simple dormitories with cafeteria style dining. I’ll take first class please. The steamship carried enthusiastic passengers on deck with French manufactured goods below in the cargo area for export to the Orient. Upon arrival the cargo would be unloaded and the steamship would return with mass produced goods from Japan and Hong Kong. So if you can’t afford a cruise this year get the next best thing and hang this industrial steamship painting.
