9780786461424: The Atlantic Transport Line, 1881-1931: A History with Details on All Ships

In 1881, the dynamic Baltimorean Bernard N. Baker established the Atlantic Transport Line, an American-owned but British-operated steamship company with service from London to New York that became famous for shipping expensive livestock and for carrying only first-class passengers. Although moderately sized, the company remained a significant presence in international shipping until World War I caused major business disruptions, followed by changed priorities during peacetime. Finally, the Great Depression led to its closure. This volume chronicles the history of the line and its absorption into J.P. Morgan's gargantuan and ill-conceived International Mercantile Marine Company against the background of efforts to revive the American mercantile marine. Descriptions of life on board Atlantic Transport Line vessels, individual histories of every vessel owned by the line, and biographies of key figures associated with the company make this the most complete account of this important player in the history of American trade.

About the Author:

Jonathan Kinghorn served as a senior regional curator for English Heritage, responsible for collections at more than 50 historic sites in Britain. He now lives in Lexington, Massachusetts, and works as a writer, editor, and content manager for corporate websites. His great-grandfather was the engineering superintendent for the Atlantic Transport Line and responsible for the mechanical operation of the entire fleet.

Review:

"a labor of love"--International Journal of Maritime History; "a monumental work filled with historical data and vast amounts of interesting detail...an amazing amount of information about the interlocking business interests of the concern and the maritime corporations with which it was associated. One extremely valuable addition to the book is Kinghorn's excellent appendix covering all the major ships of the line. Jonathan Kinghorn has provided his readers with one of the most interesting histories of an American-flag steamship line which anyone has ever written. It belongs in every maritime library"--Nautical Research Journal; "remarkably thorough...Kinghorn's book will be warmly welcomed by maritime enthusiasts as well as general readers of Atlantic history"--The Northern Mariner/Le Marin du Word.
