P&O: Across the Oceans, Across the Years

Author(s): Ruth Artmonsky

Nautical

A nostalgic glance astern at the glory days of Peninsular & Oriental (P&O) both at sea and on shore. Drawing on personal recollections in the archives of P&O Heritage, Ruth Artmonsky looks back at the company during the age of empire and a bygone time when travelling P&O captured the imagination of writers from Thackeray to Noel Coward. In addition the book takes a curator's tour of the company's art collection which dates back to P&O's foundation in 1837. The result is an engaging and richly illustrated homage to one of most famous companies afloat, in its 175th anniversary year.
