9781445656212: Elders & Fyffes: A Photographic History

Ubiquitous in ever supermarket and corner shop, it is hard to imagine a world without bananas. But it was once so! Britain’s love affair with the humble banana is as much the story of Elders & Fyffes, a company set up to import the golden fruit into the United Kingdom. Originally, British imports were of the small Cavendish banana from the Canaries but the British Government was keen to see some trade from the West Indies and in 1901 Elders & Fyffes was formed to import and distribute bananas. The first ships arrived in 1902 and the company grew and expanded. During both world wars, the fleet of Elders & Fyffes served their country as armed merchant cruisers. The ships themselves were a common sight in the ports of Avonmouth, Bristol, Southampton, Portsmouth, Garston, Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow and Cardiff.

Campbell McCutcheon uses his fabulous collection of images of Elders & Fyffes to tell the story of this famous shipping line from its inception to the present day.

Descripción Amberley, 2016. Estado de conservación: New. Liable to spoil on the long journey from warmer climes, bananas were a rarity in Britain until Elders & Fyffes started importing them from the West Indies in 1902. The company's ships were a frequent sight in British ports as the century progressed, and were pressed into service in both world wars. Telling the story of Elders & Fyffes and its fleet, this book includes a photograph of nearly every vessel the company owned up to the 1970s, when it began chartering.
