Subject:
This presentation covers the origins of the Company in 1840 and its first operations on the west coast of South America. It was the founders’ ambition to control the post, issue stamps and limit competition. This failed but a successful period of domination as a contract mail carrier followed. The company expanded and became the largest steamship company in the world by 1870. The presentation shows the transition from a destination led service to cruising and cargo carrying before its eventual demise in 1965.
