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. See the attached catalogue for further details. For a history of the company please see the catalogue for the main collection, reference B/LAH.
