Sealink 50 (Ferry Publications)

Back Order

This book, written to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Sealink's formation in 1970 brings together a selection of articles looking at various aspects of the company. When the name was first introduced in 1969, it was intended as a short-term marketing name to bring some unity to the wide range of nationalised shipping operations then under railway control. The name would finally disappear under Stena Line ownership in the 1990s, but remains a well though of part of British ferry history.

Each article in this book covers a different subject and all are well illustrated with archive black & white and more recent colour photographs. 96 pages.
