    At one time the leading passenger service between Britain and Australia, the Orient Line was founded in 1863 and continued until absorbed into P&O in 1966. This copiously illustrated volume charts the complete history of the company, including the brief revival of the name between 1977 and 1978, with individual histories of 129 ships, an assessment of life aboard in different eras and a review of the company's presence at Tilbury and its Australian ports.
