The Port of Southampton saw many changes in the 1960s and 1970s. These two decades saw the decline of the liner trade, a major strike that all but killed the British shipping industry, the rapid growth of containerization, and the early shoots of Britain's cruise ship phenomenon.
Using a unique collection of images, none previously published before, and all taken by one man on his frequent visits to the port during the 1960s and 1970s, this book shows many vessels long gone, companies who no longer sail and ways of life that have disappeared.
From liners to tramp steamers, from pleasure boats to ferries, Port of Southampton in the 1960s and 1970s shows the changing face of the South Coast's largest port.
Vessels from major companies such as Shaw Savill, Cunard, P&O, Orient Line, and smaller ones such as Sitmar, Rotterdam Lloyd, Lauro and Aznar are all illustrated, as are ferries, warships, pleasure craft and cargo vessels.
