The poster is in unused condition and measures 16 by 25 inches.

King George V and Queen Mary celebrated 25 years on the throne in 1935. Many Americans in those days were fascinated by old world royalty. United States Lines and associated steamship companies promoted trips to Britain for the festivities. This poster advertises those trips.

The poster is in unused condition and measures 16 by 25 inches. It has its original thing metal splines at the top and bottom edges. This is a rare item, printed in the U.S. and is dated February, 1935, meant only for late spring and summer voyages of that year.

Let's hope King George had a good time. A year later he was dead and his handsome but feckless son Edward VIII had become king. Ed sullied the family name by taking up with a Baltimore divorcee of doubtful reputation and abdicated within a year.
