Description

TSS Golfito was a passenger-carrying banana boat of the Fyffes Line, a fleet of ships owned and operated by the UK banana importer ‘Elders and Fyffes Limited’. Her main trade was general cargo outwards (mostly British manufactured goods), returning with bananas from the Carribbean. She is supposed to be in the background of a scene in “Dr No!” Rodmell designed.

This design appears not to have been used but would have been drawn for Fyffes.  From about 1920 Rodmell was a prolific poster designer, designing posters for not just a large number of shipping lines but also the LNER and other railways.
