The services operated both day and night, with destinations including the Hook of Holland, Antwerp, Zeebrugge and Esbjerg. The poster shows a row of steamships, seen from below to exaggerate their size, illuminated against the dark night. Artwork by Frank Mason (1876-1965), who was educated at HMS Conway and spent time at sea. He painted marine and coastal subjects. In addition to designing railway posters, he was also involved in engineering and shipbuilding in Leeds and Hartlepool.
