Brighten up your fridge with this magnet, featuring our ever popular Melbourne design. This iconic Victorian advertising poster is held in the SS Great Britain Trust collection, and is a reminder of the extraordinary feat of the ship herself. This magnet makes the perfect gift for fans of this record-breaking ship.
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.
