A wonderful tribute to this famous company.
It was 1960 when P&O merged with their arch rivals – Orient Line. With P&O’s flagship, Canberra, the near-sisters Arcadia and Iberia and Orient Lines Oriana, Orsova and Oronsay, this union created the largest passenger ship fleet afloat, a distinction that remained for many years to follow.
This is a nostalgic voyage through the last golden age of ocean liners, the 1950s and 1960s. Focussing on the iconic P&O Orient Liners, the book is littered throughout with some 170+ images of these beautiful liners and ephemera. The author, William H Miller is a renowned expert in the subject, and his narrative will take you back to a world where grand white liners with their buff funnels would take you on a regular five week voyage. A wonderful tribute to this famous company. 128 pages.
