HISTORY -- Alfred and Philip Holt established the Blue Funnel Line in 1865 to run steamers, equipped with Alfred's own design of compound engines, from Liverpool to Asia.  After initial difficulties the company achieved success when the Suez Canal was opened in 1869.  The Suez reduced the long voyage and gave Blue Funnel steamships an advantage over their sailing contemporaries, to which the Suez Canal was not accessible.

But adulation needs to be tempered with realism, as the company had times of brilliant achievement and periods when it seemed to have lost the plot.
