Various Ships - "The American President Lines and Its Forebears 1848-1984"

Product Description

American President Lines: "The American President Lines and Its Forebears 1848-1984: From Paddlewheelers to Containerships" by John Niven, printed 1987, softbound, 328 pages.

Niven writes a sweeping account of APL and the companies that came before it.

The story begins with the later years of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company. Like many American lines, after WW1 Pacific Mail leased "502" and "535" liners built by the United States Shipping Board. In 1925 U.S.S.B. decided to sell the ships and Dollar Line won the bid. Pacific Mail folded and overnight Dollar Line became a major player in the Pacific. And when that line ran into financial trouble in the late 1930s, the U.S. Maritime Commission, successor to the U.S.S.B., took back their ships and formed a new line to operate them. Thus was born American President Lines.

The story continues with the rise and fall of APL's passenger liners, the company's large freighter fleet, and the take over by container ships.

Very good condition.
