Australian Migrant Ships 1946-1977 by Peter Plowman
Book DescriptionPeter Plowman's book "Emigrant Ships to Luxury Liners" was published in 1992, and sold steadily until 2004, when supplies were exhausted. Rather than reprint that book, he decided to produce a new book that concentrated solely on the migrant ships that served Australia from 1946 to 1977, as they are still a source of great interest to many people, especially those who travelled on them, and their families. This book contains many new pictures as well as updated information.
