DP&L – A History Of The Dundee, Perth & London Shipping Company Ltd. And Associated Shipping Companies

The red funnel with the black top of the D P & L used to be seen not only at Dundee, Scotland but in many other ports in Europe, Canada and even Brazil during the 142 years it owned ships. They built and owned sailing ships, steamers, tugs and motor vessels as well as absorbing other firms in areas of activity similar to their own. In its 148 pages, the book provides the careers and details of over 200 ships owned and managed by the Company, includes 100 photographs, and also 15 fleet lists covering not only the vessels owned by D P & L, but also those of such companies as Aberdeen, Newcastle & Hull Steam Co. Ltd., Brussels Steamship Co. Ltd., Lockett Wilson Line, and Channel Shipping Ltd. to name but four, which were bought over the years.
