Liverpool Shipping Posters to Sail into Merseyside Maritime Museum

16th April 2014
Liverpool Shipping Posters to Sail into Merseyside Maritime Museum

#ShippingPosters – Sail Away: Liverpool Shipping Posters, a brand new exhibition is to displayed at the Merseyside Maritime Museum a month from today on 16 May.

The exhibition explores a century of shipping posters from the Merseyside Maritime Museum's collection featuring 14 posters dating between 1888 to 1980 , advertising many Liverpool shipping companies and many of which have never been on display before. It features posters advertising emigrant services, right through to the age of luxury transatlantic liners.

Liverpool Shipping Posters illustrate for example the era of glamorous passengers on the deck of a ship, used for advertising 'Bibby Line short sea cruises'. This particular poster to publicise the exhibition is used with the kind permission from the Archive Department of Bibby Line Group Limited in Liverpool.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
