Abstract:
This thesis examines the effect that mid 19th century steamship development had on long distance trade and communication between Britain and Australia. It takes a holistic approach, drawing together a number of diverse but related themes and using much previously unseen material to challenge many former assumptions. This thesis examines in detail the role of one particular steamship, the S.S Great Britain, as pivotal to the development of Australian trade over many years, rather than ts brief period on the trans-Atlantic run, which previous commentators have focused on.
