    HistoryThis lithograph by well known British maritime artist Charles Turner would have been used to publicise the vessel either in the offices of Orient Line agents or on promotional posters and postcards. Turner was commissioned to create similar dramatic images for the Cunard Line. Like many promotional images, the lithograph depicts the vessel against an exotic backdrop, emphasising the majesty of the vessel and the enticements of travel abroad.
