Original drawing, 3 sheets of proofs, 1 mounted proof, and 2 examples cut from publications, for an advertisement for Orient Line to Australia.

2 b/w photographs of murals in the First Class Restaurant of the RMS 'Oronsay', designed by Brian O'Rorke, and items of printed material for Orient Lines, not by Rothholz but possibly supplied to him for reference, including brochures for RMS Orcades, Orion and Orontes; plan of first class accommodation on the RMS Oronsay; and a wallet containing 3 tie-on luggage labels and one adhesive luggage labels, designed by E McKnight Kauffer, and a postcard featuring the RMS Oronsay. The codes used at the back of the brochures suggest they may date from 1951.
