Article Title:Migrant Ships of the 19th Century
Article Abstract:A major article which goes well beyond covering the ships and companies involved. It describes conditions on board the vessels and how the trade and vessels evolved from the earliest days through to the end of emigration by sea in the 1970s. The main routes used are covered. Major disasters are mentioned, but the main picture is of vessels that were well built, well maintained and well run.
