Established with a government mail contract in 1837, the Peninsular and Oriental line became a byword in luxury travel as its role of transporting colonial administrators, soldiers, planters and politicians to all parts of the Empire became increasingly important. This celebratory volume presents a collection of illustrations, photographs and ephemera from this golden era of sea travel (between the mid-19th and mid-20th centuries) and draws on the personal recollections of passengers and crew in the P&O Heritage Collection.
