Beautifully recreated from a poster in the SS Great Britain Trust collection, this Victorian advert hails from 1865. Promoting the steam from Liverpool to Australia (taking under sixty days), it's a reminder of the extraordinary feat of the SS Great Britain. Livening up any wall, it's a real conversation starter and interesting centrepiece.

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.
