HISTORY -- Elder Dempster Lines was one of the UK’s largest shipping companies, and during its 150 year history it operated more than 500 ships.  Based in the historic port of Liverpool it was the major shipping line to serve West Africa. As well as its cargo ships Elder Dempster Lines operated three liners on a scheduled service to Ghana and Nigeria.  It employed many people, from its seagoing staff to those personnel in its UK offices and Elder Dempster Agencies branches in West Africa. The company had its own Cadet Department to train the deck, engineer, purser, and catering officers of the future.

NOTES -- Having been established now for several successful years, Travellers in Time continue to be run by two people as a hobby and not as a business, and believe that a more personal service is achieved this way.  We can be reached at sales@travellersintime.net for any enquiries on items from the website or items you are looking for.

HISTORY -- The Elder Dempster Lines was a British shipping company which operated from 1932 to 2000, although its origins stretch back into the mid-19th century. Elder Dempster and Company started trading as the African Steamship Company in 1852. Elder Dempster Shipping Limited was formed in 1899, and in 1932 this company, together with the African Steamship Company, and the British & African Steam Navigation Company, came under the Elder Dempster Lines name.
