Travel in Style – Iconic Cunard Advertising in the 1920s and 1930s
Location: Gallery 5, first floor
Cunard used a variety of ways to promote its shipping services, including brochures, articles and photographs. One of the most visual and evocative methods were posters. The ‘Travel in Style – Iconic Cunard Advertising in the 1920s and 1930s’ exhibition features 14 posters that were used in Cunard's sales offices throughout the world.
The glamour, excitement and safety portrayed in these posters would have informed potential travellers what they could expect from travelling with Cunard. Complementing the posters on display are examples of printed advertising material and ephemera used by Cunard to promote its services during the era.
The records form part of the Cunard Archive held at Special Collections and Archives, University of Liverpool Library.
