Pacific Argentine Brazil Line
(Operated by Pope & Talbot)


Originally a U.S. Shipping Board line sold to McCormick Steamship Co. in 1927, Pacific Argentine Brazil Line
passed to Pope & Talbot when the latter company took over McCormick during the depression.
McCormick was operated as a subsidiary until dissolved during WW2. Pope & Talbot sold Pacific Argentine Brazil Line
to Moore-McCormack in 1956, which consolidated the line with its own Pacific Republics Line.
