For more than 150 years P&O has been one of the world's greatest shipping lines. Beginning with the mail contract to Gibraltar, P&O quickly became the British way to travel the world. The first shipping company to offer cruises, more than 100 years later cruising on P&O's famous white ships remains an important part of the company's activities, although it is now an internationally based group with many wide-ranging interests. This is the history of the company and its operations.

The cowl was fitted because previously the old design ,without the cowl would discharge lumps of soot and passengers would pick the soot up and rub it into their clothes and claim compensation from the shipping company. Myself and another apprentice fitted an over sized bath tub on the Rangitoto for Queen Solotie from Tonga , I believe her visit was for our Queens coronation. The company was then R & H Green and Silley Weir. It was a very interesting time in the 50s with the war not long finished and ship design was moving away from the utility design to the streamline model with raked back bridge instead of the vertical flat old styles. It was also the time when cruise ships started be designed."; 10.7 X 7.6 X 1.1 inches; 224 pages. Codice articolo 22619
