Shipping Wonders of the World

Welcome to the Shipping Wonders of the World Website

This site is designed to share information about the magazine Shipping Wonders of the World.


Published by the Amalgamated Press, it appeared as 55 weekly instalments from 30th January 1936 through to 23rd February 1937. A vast range of subjects was covered.


The complete work was designed to be bound in two hardback volumes which are still readily available. Others chose to retain the weekly parts with their attractive colour covers.  Today the weekly parts are more difficult to obtain but do appear from time to time.

A number of themed pages will be added which will add depth to the content, such as The Navy Goes to Work; along with general information, such as biographical notes about the Editor, Clarence Winchester.
