Sailings Schedule - England, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Shaw Savill Lines, circa 1950s-1960s Document Reg. No: HT 2633

Summary:
Folded passenger schedule for Shaw Savill Lines circa 1950s-1960s. It is part of a collection of 175 items of post-war ship memorabilia collected by John McKay. John began collecting shipping brochures as a boy through an interest in travel and later used some of the material in his professional capacity as a Geography and Social Studies teacher. He finally made a voyage himself in 1957-1958, to England to attend a scouting jamboree, although he ended up staying for 18 months. He remembers lots of Australians going over at that time, and references to Earls Court as 'Kangaroo Alley'.
