More About this Item


Description: FRED SIMPSON (DATES UNKNOWN) ORIENT CO'S PLEASURE CRUISE TO WEST INDIES. 1899. 39 3/4x30 inches, 101x76 1/4 cm. Andrew Reid & Co. Ltd., Newcastle. Condition A- / A: time-staining, light foxing, minor tears and abrasions in margins; unobtrusive horizontal fold. Cruises to warm climes during the winter months became de rigueur towards the end of the 19th century. An ad in the Economist from October 22, 1898, promoting this very tour, states: "Winter afloat in the West Indies is most like a glorious summer, and at such a time - when yachts and steam launches are laid up at home - the trip should be taken." The same ad mentions that the ship making the cruise is the Lusitania, who sailed for the Orient Line between her launch in 1871 through 1900.
