Canadian Pacific Railway Empress Canada Fine Art Giclee Print

This is a vintage fine art giclee print featuring an advertising for the majestic ocean liner 'Empress of Britain' sails on chariots of fire in this Canadian Pacific image. The period between the two World Wars was the hey-day of luxury cruising. During these years, Canadian Pacific operated more than 350 cruises to the West Indies, The Mediterranean, the Canary Islands, Scandinavia and around the world. And the crown jewel of their fleet was undoubtedly the Empress of Britain. To compete with such majestic ships as the Cunard Lines Aquitania, the French Lines Ile de France and the United States Lines Leviathan, Canadian Pacific Steamships launched the 45,000-ton Empress of Britain in 1930, the second ship to bear the name. A somewhat bulky looking three-funneled vessel, claimed by some of its admirers to be the most luxuriously-appointed ship to have ever sailed, it was the largest ship operated by the Canadian Pacific and proudly took its place as the flagship of the fleet. Beck sets the Empress assail beneath a globetrotters fantasy frieze of exotically colored travel vignettes. In this anonymous piece, the oversize image dwarfs Neptune's golden chariot flying under its bow, with only the sunset sky capable of approaching her grandeur.

Canadian Pacific Oceanline Cruises Poster Vintage Fine Art Giclee Print

This is a vintage fine art giclee print featuring a sample of the exotic places to travel using Canadian Pacific Oceanline Cruises. Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) was incorporated on February 16, 1881. Less than five years later a ribbon of steel united Canada when the line to the Pacific coast was completed with the driving of the 'Last Spike' at Craigellachie, British Columbia, on November 7, 1885. By the 1920s, CPR had become known as the 'World's Greatest Travel System'. That slogan helped CPR promote its renowned transcontinental passenger trains, a chain of luxury hotels and a fleet of steamships. Since its beginnings, CPR commissioned many well-known artists and even went so far as to build an in-house team of graphic artists and printers to illustrate the company's vast empire. As a result, Canadian Pacific made a significant contribution to the art of poster design. Today, CPR operates on about 14,000 miles of rail lines in Canada and the United States and is among the largest freight railways in North America.

Throughout the first fifty years of the last century, the tourism industry in Canada thoroughly depended on travelers from countries outside. Europeans traveled from France, Great Britain and Belgium, frequenting big cities like Quebec and Montreal for their cultural allure and French heritage. At the turn of the twentieth century, the Canadian Pacific Railway dominated Canada as the fastest and best means of getting to any major large city in its country. For that reason, Canadian Pacific was coined the ?World?s Greatest Travel System?. The Canadian Pacific Oceanlines were equally as powerful. In fact, they were so high up the monarchy level of travel providers, that they were able to purchase a line of lavish steamships and swanky hotels. The ever-popular posters and art that have a Canadian Pacific theme have consistently been a favorite of Enjoyart.com customers.
