Brochure - 'Passenger Fares, World-wide Services', P&O Line, 1968 Document Reg. No: HT 2672

Summary:
Brochure issued by P&O Line, in 1968. It contains information for fares, ports and routes, for various Orient Line ships. 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'.
