Serving a burgeoning and increasingly industrialized economy, Britain's shipping, ship-building, port and fishing industries enjoyed unprecedented rates of growth in the half-century before the outbreak of World War I. The course of this growth was charted in the "Annual Statements of Navigation and Shipping", prepared by the Board of Trade and published each year by order of parliament. This book draws on the "Annual Statements" to provide a statistical profile of the extent and character of shipping movements in the coastal and foreign trade of the 130 or so Customs Ports of the UK.
