Hong Kong - SS President Wilson

Emphasising the nautical theme in this poster allows APL to show their ship steaming into Hong Kong past a Chinese sailing junk, juxtaposing not just East and West but also modernity and tradition. The President Wilson was in service from 1948 until 1973 and was one of the mainstays of APL's Trans-Pacific passenger service.
