Norddeutscher Lloyd Bremen Magnifiques Croisières". Depicts a sailor holding a flag with the company emblem of an anchor, the Bremen key and a wreath of oak leaves.
Norddeutscher Lloyd was one of the largest and most successful German shipping companies in history, managing to survive despite the devastation of two world wars. At the end of Word War I, Germany had to hand over most of its merchant fleet to the allies. However, thanks to government compensation for its maritime losses, Norddeutscher Lloyd was able to rebuild much of its fleet by the end of the 1920s. To demonstrate its return to greatness, the Europa and the Bremen were built, winning the Blue Ribbon race for being the fastest ships in the Atlantic. This image was used in a brochure for the company.
