COLLECTION OF MATCH BOOK COVERS FROM THE MACANDREWS LINE

DESCRIPTION -- Rare collection of original 'match book' covers from The MacAndrews Line shipping company of London, England. The covers show actual pictures of 'fruit ships' from the company. As items such as this were quite often disposed of after use, they have become very collectable if found in later years.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Fair

HISTORY -- William MacAndrews left his Scottish hometown of Elgin for Liverpool in 1770, to start a business selling fresh fruit imported from Spain in small fast schooners. Despite a succession of European wars the business prospered and was past on to his sons. The Liverpool business changed names from time-to-time as additional partners came and went.  MacAndrews & Co Ltd was operated by the trustees until the end of 1935, when it was bought by Andrew Weir & Co Ltd, as a subsidiary for their United Baltic Corporation.
