The Clydeside shipping company Patrick Henderson & Co was founded in 1834 by Patrick and his three brothers and operated a fleet of ships sailing between Glasgow, New Zealand and Burma, carrying cargo, the Royal Mail and passengers until 1952. This detailed history of ‘Paddy Henderson’, as the line was affectionately known, also includes a fascinating account of its huge Burmese river fleet, the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. Slightly off-mint. The book is musty due to long storage and bears its 1961 cover price, 25s.
