HISTORY -- The combined Shaw, Savill & Albion Line was created in 1882, but Shaw, Savill & Co retained five sailing ships, and John Leslie & Partners ran their ships with this fleet. Shaw, Savill & Albion Line also ran a joint service to New Zealand with White Star Line from 1884 to 1933, when the collapse of the White Star Line enabled the service to be taken over completely by Shaw Savill. Shaw Savill continued to use White Star-style names with the suffix "-ic".

COLLECTION OF LAST VOYAGE CHINA FROM THE LINER SS CANBERRA

ITEM PRICE REDUCED
{was £25 - now £19}


DESCRIPTION
-- Small collection of china pieces from the last ever voyage of the old vessel the SS Canberra and consists of a ship's Cup & Saucer and a Side Plate. All of the items are Royal Porcelain pieces and are all bottom marked and are all original items as the design was patented to The SS Canberra only.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- P&O commissioned the Canberra to operate the combined P&O-Orient Line service between the United Kingdom and Australia. The arrival of the jet airliner had already caused a drop in demand for this service; a reduction in emigration to Australia and wars forcing the closure of the Suez Canal saw the route become unprofitable. However a refit in 1974 saw the Canberra adapted to cruising. Unusually, this transition from an early life as a purpose built ocean liner to a long and successful career in cruising, occurred without any major external alterations, and with only minimal internal and mechanical changes over the years.

HISTORY -- The Union-Castle Line was a British shipping line that operated a fleet of passenger liners and cargo ships between Europe and Africa from 1900 to 1977. It was formed from the merger of the Union Line and Castle Shipping Line. It merged with Bullard King and Clan Line in 1956 to form British & Commonwealth Shipping, and then with South African Marine Corporation (commonly referred to as SAF-Marine) in 1973 to create International Liner Services, but maintained its separate identity throughout. Its shipping operations ceased in 1977.

HISTORY -- Safmarine was formed in 1946 by South African industrialists and American shipowners. In 1966 Safmarine became joint operators of the mail service from Southampton to South Africa with Union-Castle Line. As a result the Union-Castle ships Pretoria Castle and Transvaal Castle were transferred to Safmarine and, ultimately, the South African Flag. They became respectively S.A. Oranje and S.A. Vaal, and were painted in Safmarine colours. In 1973 British & Commonwealth Shipping Co. and Safmarine combined their operations under the name International Liner Services Ltd in October 1973.

HISTORY -- The Oceanic Steam Navigation Company or White Star Line of Boston Packets, more commonly known as the White Star Line, was a prominent British shipping company, today most famous for its ill-fated vessel, the RMS Titanic, and the World War I loss of Titanic's sister ship Britannic. In 1934 the line merged with its chief rival, Cunard Line, which operated as a separate entity until 2005 and is now part of Carnival Corporation & PLC. As a lasting reminder of the White Star Line, modern Cunard ships use the term White Star Service to describe the impeccable level of customer care expected of the company.

NOTES -- This postcard is taken from our collection of over 2000 shipping postcards and is protected in a plastic wallet. If there is a particular postcard of a vessel you are looking for please let Travellers in Time know at sales@travellersintime.net. (SCode 50) [PR]
