On board The Queen , by Charles Dixon 1902. The SS Queen was a cross-Channel steamer operated by the South East and Chatham Railway from Folkestone to Boulogne. The painting, created for a poster to advertise the service, shows a lively day at sea, with big waves and white water. Despite this, fashionably dressed passengers seem to be enjoying themselves on deck.
