Description: The development of the cargo steamship in the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries has been almost completely neglected by maritime, economic and industrial historians. Yet this development played a large part in establishing Britain’s economic and political ascendancy at this period and few aspects of our maritime history are as worthy of study.
This neglect has led to widespread false assessment of the relative roles of the steamship and the sailing vessel during this period and to the placing of undue emphasis on the significance in history of single trade operations such as the tea trade from China in clippers which were small in comparison with the total of contemporary merchant shipping activity.
