Various Ships - 1973 Journal of Commerce centenary issue for USL

Product Description

United States Lines - The special “Journal of Commerce” from February 20, 1973, celebrating United States Lines’ centennial.  The sixteen-page supplement is filled with articles about USL’s “far-sighted” dive into containerization with dozens of b&w photos, and page-after-page of congratulatory advertising. 

A centennial in ’73 might have been based more on promotional purposes than on fact.  A front-page story explains that the American Line was founded in 1872 and started sailing in 1873, then jumps to the present day.  Skipped is the history of the American Line becoming part of the International Mercantile Marine Corporation in the early 1900s, the line being dropped but their eagle houseflag taken over by a newly formed USL and sister company Panama Pacific, the collapse of I.M.M. and the sale of USL, and the various changes in ownership leading up to the 1970s.  Also, not a word about passenger ships other than a sketch by Frank Braynard of the PENNSYLVANIA of 1873. 

Never mind.  It is still fascinating to read about USL’s world-wide reach in the 1970s and their big investment in containerization.  

Good condition.
