MANY RARE, OLD AND UNUSUAL TYPES

DESCRIPTION
-- B/W photograph of the Port Line vessel Port Nelson which is an original old photograph and not a copy.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- The origins of Port Line go back to 1914 when its predecessor, Commonwealth & Dominion Line, was formed by merging the Antipodean services of Thos B. Royden & Co's Indra Line, J.P. Corry's Star Line, William Milburn's Anglo-Australian Steam Navigation Co and G.D. Tyser & Co. This new fleet of 23 ships was quickly increased to 25 and all the vessels adopted a distinctive new livery made up from the buff, black topped funnels of the Corry fleet and the grey hulls and houseflag of Tyset. The 'Port' prefixed names came from Milburn's Anglo-Australian Steamship Company.

She was sold but despite several owners she remained laid up in Hong Kong and sadly never sailed again.
