Farrell (Steamship) Lines Boxed Playing Cards
Founded in 1925 as American South African Lines the company
began serving South Africa from Eastern U. S. ports in 1926.
In 1947 when regularly scheduled service to West Africa was inaugurated
the name of the company was changed to Farrell Lines Incorporated.
They sailed around the continent of Africa from West Africa to
South Africa, then around the Cape of Good Hope to East Africa.
After two decades of acquisitions and financial retrenchment
the company was acquired by P&O Nedlloyd in 2000. We have
acquired several boxed sets of playing cards from this passenger
liner company. Each set of two decks has a different back. All
decks are complete. The boxes show signs of rubbing, scratches,
stains or soiling.
