Story of the Sarawak Steamship Company
Vincent H. K. Foo & Chai Foh Chin
The authors having traced the early history of the sea trade in and around Sarawak, move on to the story of the company itself. The company was by a group of Chinese traders in 1875, with Rajah Charles Brooke's encouragement, with just one ship bought from the Rajah. The fleet soon expanded as trade between Borneo and the peninsula developed and ended in the late 1960s transforming itself into the travel and tour company it is today. 166 pages with several black and white photos from the company's archives.
