Vintage Red Star Line Ocean Liner Postcards

I've just acquired a super collection of early Ocean Liner postcards. Each has hardly seen the light of day in over 90 years! They were nicely preserved in an album, and almost every card was produced by the Red Star Line Company.
Click on the blog title above to visit the cards currently up for auction.
The Art Deco style artwork is quite beautiful, and they resemble their larger cousins, the vintage travel posters of the day. This poster art can be quite valuable, especially with the travel posters. The postcards are miniature works of art!

The postcards were "official" premiums given away. They could have been obtained back then when you booked passage on one of the Red Star liners. A few of the postcards even describe how to receive these cards!
