In 1871, a bright new star appeared on the Liverpool shipping scene. Like a phoenix, the White Star Line grew out of the ashes of a bankrupt sailing ship line to become the fastest-growing and most famous of all shipping companies. Their first trasatlantic steamships set a new standar for travel, a standard that was to remain as long as the company existed. Operated between Europe, the USA and Canada, the White Star Line also sailed to New Zealand, South Africa and Australia. The White Star Line never had the fastest ships, but theirs were the most luxurious. From Oceanic of 1871 to Georgic of 1932, there were many ground-breaking White Star Line. The company’s most famous are undoubetlly the Olimpic, Titanic and Britannic, but the other seventy or so ships of the line also helped White Star become the most famous shipping line of all time.
