Orient Line Cruises Poster

From the 1950s, this advertising lithograph was done by De Holden Stone.  I believe the Orient Line is British, and all their ship names began with 'Or', as in Oronsay, Orsova, and the Orion, Orontes and Orcades listed here for the Mediterranean route.  Here's a closeup poster detail of the ship.
