    Reefer Ships

    £21.00
    Following the scanning of some 45,000 slides into jpeg images covering the period 1966 to 2006 it was noted that reefer ships featured prominently. Nearly 500 different vessels photographed mostly around the Thames, Medway, Dover, and some European ports. From this around 170 ships are depicted in this book showing the sleek lines and colour schemes of the variety of ships seen & photographed, many of which are long gone.

    Author: Geoffrey Watson

    This is the sixth book containing photographs from author's personal collection, most of which have not been seen before. Some of the ships had just limited refrigerated space, mostly for the carriage of meat products.The purpose-built ships featured include fruit juice carriers and ships built with a high speed for the carriage of bananas and other perishable products. Famous names such as Fyffes, Chiquita, Geest and Dole are all in here. Some of the ships will be recognisable as being formerly British, and details have been given, where known.Ship enthusiasts will be well versed with the shipping companies that carry the produce – Blue Star Line, Horn Line, Lauritzen, Salen, Jamaica Producers, Alianca, Port Line, ELMAR, Carmel, Union Castle, Federal Line – to name but a few. The Soviet Union, China as well as the many and varied Greek entities involved within the industry, are heavily featured. Numerous other countries have a fleet of ships with very pleasing lines, and they are included here. Fish carriers were covered previously, therefore it makes sense to leave more room in this book for ships involved with the carriage of general perishable cargoes. As much as possible, the ship photographs will be in alphabetical order.
