Product Synopsis

A sumptuous and delightful collection of postcards tracing the story of the illustrious White Star Line The White Star Line was originally founded in Liverpool in 1845 to provide passage to Australia before Thomas Ismay purchased and transformed the identity and goodwill of the line into the successful Oceanic Steam Navigation Co. Cleverly working in partnership with Harland & Wolff, the line focussed on luxury over speed, building many of the world's most famous vessels: Oceanic, Titanic, Olympic, Britannic and Majestic. Finally merging with its great rival Cunard during the 1930s Depression, the companies still retained their original names and company colours while flying one another's flags below their own. This evocative book explores the colourful story of the line, from personal postcards and messages from passengers, crew and troops, to the careers of the vessels in peacetime and at war.

This beautiful book includes ships with alternative identities, unusual stories such as the planned escape of Dr Crippen and his fateful journey on board Montrose, and showcases a wide variety of interior views, advertisements, menus and unpublished 'proof', silk and Company Issue cards, conveying the glamour and drama of this world-renowned line. Packed with stunning images, including many previously unpublished and rare postcards, this book is a must for maritime historians and ship-lovers alike.
