This quality canvas tote bag is a great way to cut down on plastic bag waste, while also featuring a classic design. This bag features a real Victorian advert from 1865, held in the SS Great Britain Trust collection, which promoted the record-breaking journey time of the SS Great Britain to Australia. The long carry handles (58cm) mean it’s easy to sling over shoulders and carry the weight of a big family shop.
In 1852, the SS Great Britain carried hundreds of emigrants in her first voyage from Liverpool to Melbourne. This would be the first of 32 round trips to Australia. Advertising posters such as these would have been an important source of information for people travelling in Victorian times.
