Shipping Movements in the Ports of the United Kingdom, 1871-1913

David J. Starkey

Liverpool University Press

This volume provides quantitative data pertaining to shipping movements in each of the Customs Ports of the UK from 1871 to 1913. Drawn from the annual statistical accounts published by central government, these data offer indices of the nation's sea-borne trade and shipping traffic, disaggregated by port. It is intended that this publication will provide one of the building blocks with which an analysis of the maritime dimension of the British economy can be constructed.
