-

Coast Lines was for a time one of the great success stories of British shipping. Focussing on the coastal liner trades, the group dominated its chosen sector of business more successfully than almost any other shipping company in the United Kingdom. But it is also one of the great untold stories of the shipping industry. In this, the third book in the Coast Lines Key Ancestors series, renowned maritime historians Nick Robins and Malcom McRonald take us through the history and development of the alliance of Burns and Laird, and their involvement in the 1913 formation of Coast Lines.
