Art in Travel

The Museum's collections include 20th century travel brochures, an artful array of photographs depicting exotic destinations, accomodations aboard the shipping line's vessels and suggestions for best travel seasons.

This travel brochure or travel leaflet was published by NYK Line, likely in the 1950s. It features a full global map on one side accompanied by photographs the ships, inside and out, and on the flip side, a description of the most popular attractions in Japan and China.

"To the Far East: Japan and China and Around the World advertised luxurious travel to far-away destinations, circa 1950-1960.
