Founded in 1910, the company ran a regular transatlantic service between Norway and the United States, and later to East Africa as well. Primarily due to competition from air travel, transatlantic passenger voyages were discontinued in 1971.

The Holland America Line is a cruise shipping company. It was initiated during 1873 as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company (Dutch: Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij), a shipping and passenger line. Headquartered in Rotterdam and providing service to the Americas, it became known as Holland America Line. HAL is now headquartered in Seattle, Washington, U.S.

South African Lines Ltd from Cape Town is an old shipping company that traded from the turn of the century. It later became the Safmarine shipping company when taken over several years ago.

COPY OF THE ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER 'THE SPHERE' FROM 1914

[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The Sphere (full title: The Sphere: An Illustrated Newspaper for the Home) was a British newspaper, published weekly from 27 January 1900 until the closure of the paper on 27 June 1964; the first issue came out at the height of the Boer War and was no doubt a product of that conflict and the public appetite for images. At the time, it was in direct competition with The Graphic and Illustrated London News, and evidence of this rivalry can be seen in the latter's publication shortly after of a new illustrated paper entitled The Spear in an attempt to confuse readers.

HISTORY -- The Overseas Containers Limited (OCL) was a container shipping company formed by a consortium of British shipping companies. It is not to be confused with Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL). In the early days of containerisation considerable investment was still required in the necessary infrastructure to transport and handle shipping containers, and many shipping companies formed consortia to ease the financial burden. OCL was formed in 1969 by four British companies: British and Commonwealth Shipping, Furness Withy, P&O and the Ocean Steamship Company.

HISTORY -- Safmarine (South African Marine Corporation) 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.
