Here's an article about 1950's Cunard posters on a site named "flashbak.com" (a site that is new to me). I thought it was interesting, especially the advertising slogan "No wonder more people prefer Cunard" which appears on many of the posters. It also includes one of my favorite Cunard promotional videos, "Getting There Is Half The Fun", which we have discussed on this forum before.

I figured others on this forum might find this article of some interest as well.
