From Victorian times to the Second World War, long-distance travel could mean weeks at sea. This handsome book draws on the accounts of passengers from all walks of life - soldiers, emigrants, colonial clerks, young wives - to evoke that vanished world of steamship voyages. Their memoirs, diaries and letters, richly illustrated with vintage photographs and memorabilia, describe shipboard life, fellow passengers and crew, and their ports of call.
