you are right Colin they didn't, but i'm sure you know these were actually Atlas Express depots, the list was to impress, make sure companies understood White Star could handle goods for anywhere. I actually went to some of these depots.

Many happy memories working at this place. 1965/1966 I remember the boss Arthur and John who done clerical duties in the little office to the left as you walked in to the loading area. Great times.
