This sumptuous ship was built in Woolwich by Phineos Ce and his son Peter. It was beautifully decorated. Its rigging was that of the classic three-mast: at the front the mast of misaine, in the center the large mast, at the rear the mast of artimon.

Wishing to evoke through Tintin, the history of means of transport, peoples, countries ..., Hergé develops the project of chromos with the help of E.P. Jacobs.
The first images appeared in 1946 in the newspaper Tintin and the chromos could be obtained in exchange for Tintin stamps.
Initially broader, the project is restricted and becomes the history of means of transport.
The 300 existing chromos are signed Hergé and appear in 2 stages.
Firstly in collaboration with E.P.Jacobs, the AÉROSTATION series and the RAILWAYS are published.
Then in collaboration with J.Martin appear the series L'AUTOMOBILE DES ORIGINES À 1900. AVIATION WAR 1939-45.AVIATION FROM THE ORIGINS TO 1914. THE NAVY FROM THE ORIGINS TO 1700. THE NAVY FROM 1700 TO 1800
