HISTORY -- The White Star Line became one of the most famous and prestigious shipping lines of the 19th and 20th centuries. The White Star Line was originally founded in Liverpool in 1845 by John Pilkington and Henry Wilson. After James Chambers married Henry Wilson's daughter he became a partner. However, in 1867, the Royal Bank got into a financial bind and closed down, revealing a debt of 527,000 which the line owed. White Star Line was now facing forced bankruptcy. This is when Thomas Henry Ismay (a man of vision and organisational genius, named in his lifetime the Merchant Prince)purchased the White Star Line.

DESCRIPTION
-- Early unused colour postcard of the White Star Line vessel The SS Laurentic which is in an excellent condition. The vessel was tragically sunk by a German U99 on the 3rd November 1940.

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- SS Laurentic was a British ocean liner of the White Star Line. The Dominion Line steamship company operated liners on the Liverpool-Canada route in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Their ships had become outdated, so in 1907 two new liners were ordered from Harland and Wolff, the SS Alberta and SS Albany. However, while they were being built they were transferred to the White Star Line and with them the White Star Line itself entered the Canadian passenger trade. The Alberta was renamed the Laurentic and Albany became the Megantic
