The Golden Age of The Atlantic
“Analyze of the potential loss of the transatlantic
passenger traffic in the period 1914-1960”.
In the period of 1900-1960 approximately 22,721,355 immigrants have arrived in the United States of America.
Most of them arrived from European counties. At the same time, in the period of 1900-1914 around 21,300,000
passengers were carried between European ports and ports in the USA. In both directions.
These numbers immodestly attract our attention.
This research is the Part Nr.2 of my previous work called “The Golden Age of The Atlantic”, Part 1 “Development
of transatlantic passenger shipbuilding in the second half of the 19th and first half of the 20th century. Historical
Overview.”, Riga, 2008.
In the Part 2 I'm trying to show the result of calculations of the potential loss of passenger flow in the transatlantic
traffic because of geopolitical situation in Europe and USA in the period of 1914-1960. The geopolitical situation definitively
affected the shipping and shipbuilding industry of the Western Europe and USA.
As well, it became an attribute of fading of the transatlantic transportation industry.
