First Card

Read Star Line First Card

This card is probably the first for the Red Star Line. It shows Westernland rigged for both sail and steam.

Built in 1883, the funnel colours of cream and black with a red star were changed in 1893 to a black funnel with a white band. Details of the 1894 Atlantic sailings, which were operated jointly with the American Line, are shown on the rear of the card.

The printers were Muhlmeister & Johler of Hamburg and Bremen. The artwork is unsigned and sets the standard of excellence which was to be maintained by the many cards painted by Henri Cassiers for the Red Star Line.
