Abstract

Ship owners and shipping agents, Huddart, Parker & Co. ran the Huddart Parker line of coastal shipping vessels carrying cargo and passengers between Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and other ports. These records are interesting and provide information about shipping and freight exports and imports. There are also occasional snippets of general information, such as early fruit fumigation requirements, & a missing case of "native weapons" consigned to Bishop Montgomery. There are letter book copies of correspondence, account books and ledgers, cash books - all combined covering the period between 1882 - 1953. - (Transfered to the Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office (TAHO) Jan 2013 - www.linc.tas.gov.au/tasmaniasheritage)
