calendar card cartoon

Description:

RMS Olympic calendar card cartoon. Olympic, during her twenty-four year career earned two popular nicknames, the first 'Old Reliable' as a result of her service as a troop transport during the First World War. The second, following the war, was 'The Ship Magnificent' reflecting the style of her interiors, a leftover of a fast disappearing age. The company, as part of their promotional material, issued this cartoon, one of a series produced by artist Will Owen, as a calendar card for agents.
