This is the story of the first century of one of the most successful international commercial organisations ever begun by New Zealanders. It is also an important social history. When this country was settled by Europeans, the newcomers occupied small pockets of land around the coastline, isolated from each other by steep, untracked hills and the sea. Linking these settlements, carrying people and cargo, was the first function of the shipping lines of the last century. but the country itself is one of the most remote in the world and the Union Steam Ship Company, quite early in its life, stretched out to link up with the other nations of the region. In time it became the biggest maritime operation in the southern hemisphere. 205 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
