On upper left: "Greet Europe relaxed and refreshed by France-Afloat". In text box on bottom left: "From the moment you step aboard a French line ship, 'till you disembark, life is sparkling and gay like French champagne. Whether you are bound for England or the Continent, choose a great French Line ship: the luxurious LIBERTE, the celebrated ILE DE FRANCE, or the informal FLANDRE." At bottom left "French Line/610 Fifth Ave., New York 20, N.Y." script and text box along left hand side of poster. Possibly signed, "J. Paige"
