    Author: Malcolm Cranfield

    Published: November 2020

    The three decades following the end of the Second World War, before the container revolution took hold over dry cargo shipping, may be described as the Ocean Freighter Heyday. Many ships which survived the War remained in service well into the 1960s while newly-built ships were only slowly developed from pre-war designs.

    The four sections of the book cover some of the best known companies offering scheduled cargo liner services plus views of ships berthed in the UK and north continental ports, with a few overseas, and of ships underway in local rivers and waterways. A final section looks at tramp ships.
