Material relating to the Booth Line, Lamport and Holt Line and Zillah Shipping company



These records were donated to the Maritime Archives & Library of National Museums Liverpool in 2003 following a reorganisation of the P & O Archive held at the National Maritime Museum. The records had been part of the archive of Blue Star Line, which was purchased by P & O in 1998. The P & O archive reference numbers are marked on the catalogue at the beginning of each section and take the form PO/INF/…The records predominantly relate to the sale of vessels, but also include some items relating to Booth Line and Blue Star Line. For further details see the attached catalogue or contact The Archives Centre for a copy of the catalogue. For a history of the company please see the catalogue for the main collection, reference B/LAH.
