Liable to spoil on the long journey from warmer climes, bananas were a rarity in Britain until Elders & Fyffes started importing them from the West Indies in 1902.

Telling the story of Elders & Fyffes and its fleet, this book includes a photograph of nearly every vessel the company owned up to the 1970s, when it began chartering.
