The Anchor-Donaldson Line offered transatlantic steamship passenger services between the ports of Glasgow, Moville, and Liverpool in the U.K., the Canadian ports of Montreal, Toronto, Halifax, and St. John, and Portland, Maine. The Anchor-Donaldson Line was formed on October 20, 1916, when the Donaldson Line absorbed the Anchor Line, forming a new company to be known as the Anchor-Donaldson Line. Sir Alfred Booth, of the Cunard Line, a company that had a strong influence over the Anchor Line, was named as chairman of the new company.
Near-fine condition, a lovely piece in contemporary frame.
