This shipping company was a 1933 incorporation of two disparate companies: the Aberdeen Line, founded in 1825, and the Australian Commonwealth line, founded in 1916. In 1933, the two were purchased by the Shaw, Savill & Albion Line and merged into one. Here, we catch a glimpse of tropical palm trees as one of their steamships cruises through the Suez Canal.
