Lifeboat Poster

Switzerland, c. 1930

ID #SWISSTUBE41-Z-06

An absolutely lyrical poster that hints at a larger story behind it. This vintage Swiss poster shows a lifeboat floating in rocky waters. The image suggests a recent shipwreck: three people on the boat are huddling underneath blankets, one is passed out in someone's arms, and a final person is reaching out to grab a man who has fallen overboard.
