The Importance of the Port of Boulogne-sur-Mer
The seaport of Boulogne, on the British Channel, has rendered outstanding service during the war. It is chiefly important for two things passenger traffic and fish. The port is advantageously located between Paris and London. Before the war, passenger trains made the trip between Boulogne and Parts In 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The passenger steamers cross the channel between Boulogne and Folkestone ln 1 hour and 15 minutes, and between Folkestone and Victoria Station. London, the journey is covered in about 2 hours.
Due to this excellent train and steamship service, carrying a steady stream of passengers between the two great European capitals, Boulogne has been able to claim the first passenger port position in France. Like a number of the channel ports, this port anticipates the possibility of some diversion of passenger traffic between England and France in the not distant future because of the construction of a tunnel connecting the two countries.
