The poster encourages people to travel by The East Asiatic Company to the Far East.
The poster is most likely portraying the Danish ship, Jutlandia, somewhere in the exotic Asia carrying goods and passengers.
Jutlandia was built as a state-of-the-art ship in 1934 in Denmark and sailed en route between Copenhagen and Bangkok. During the Nazi invasion of Denmark in 1940 she narrowly escaped being bombed by both axis and allied forces though she was a not a military target.
The East Asiatic Company Ltd. traces its origins back to 1884. The Company was formally registered in Denmark in 1897 and from this date on it has pursued a worldwide business within trading, shipping and industry.
What makes this poster very special is the stamp in the right side. The stamp is from December 31, 1932 and tells that the poster has been taking down from train station by DSB (Danish State Railways). A poster with a stamp like this is not something which appears every day and also tell where the poster has been used. This is poster could very be unique.
