Making of MacBrayne, The (Nov)

Making of MacBrayne, The


"The company's ships and history became embedded in my mind." So the author describes how as a child he became fascinated by David MacBraye Ltd. Many decades later, Andrew decided to explore that history in 'greater depth.' The result is this weighty book, which chronicles the operational and business history of the transport company founded in 1879 by David MacBrayne, which in its latest incarnaton is CalMac Ferries Ltd. The recent declassification of archives, together with digitisation of ships' logs and old newspapers is a treasure trove of information to delve deeper and deeper into, including David MacBrayne's hand-written correspondence from the 1880s.
