Our Heritage: 1893

Heritage 7

In 1893 Bibby Line was placed on the approved list for Government officials and their families travelling to Burma and the Far East.

This was viewed as a good way of managing the risk of either market suffering from a downturn. Both the Yorkshire and the Lancashire were converted to take up to 70 passengers. These majestic liners became recognisable around the world with 4 elegant masts and pink black-topped funnels.
