ROYAL MAIL LINES memorabilia

Front cover of Royal Mail Lines and Pacific Steam Navigation Company first joint house magazine published in 1959.
One of the greatest shipping concerns of the world in the first quarter of the twentieth century, Royal Mail and Pacific Steam were taken over by Furness in about 1965 and their activities were slowly reduced and the fleets disposed off in a matter of a few years.
Both companies had a long tradition in Portuguese waters with their South America regular lines.
