History of the Yeoward Line

The Yeoward Line, managed by Messrs. Yeoward Brothers, inaugurated their service in the year 1899, and were known world-wide for their Passenger tourist traffic from Liverpool to Lisbon, Madeira and the Canary Islands.

The progress of the Company had been phenomenal, they had developed the study of the comfort of their patrons to a fine art, whilst the inauguration of this Line has also been the means of providing the home markets with large regular supplies of Canary bananas and other produce.

The success of this Company is a good example of enterprise in Liverpool of the early twentieth century.
