    Default Surviving Liverpool Shipping Lines

    Does anyone know:

    1. How many shipping lines are still registered in Liverpool?


    ADVERTISING




    2. How many shipping lines that may still be trading under their original names, but have moved city? Cunard is an example.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    I cant find any Liverpool registered shipowners, I have tried on Google, A lot of them disapeared into other companies. Such as the Atlantic Container Lines, a mix of Cunard, Swedish and others , and so on . Very difficult today.
    I could name many Companies from the fifties tho.`

    Default Liverpool Shipping Co's

    "Sad is'nt it!" Way back in the late 50's, as a taxi driver, I did a lot of work for the Shipping Federation Office's then situated near the Pier Head, I guess this organisation has 'gone' too!!! They would have been the ones to answer the question regarding surviving companies. Bye the way! does anyone remember the seamans strike in the late 50's? I'd love to hear comments from those involved! Cheers All
