By 1916 the company had reorganized as Anchor-Donaldson Ltd and was owned equally by Donaldson Brothers Ltd and Anchor Line (Henderson Brothers) Ltd, a Cunard subsidiary. The company later developed service to South America and cargo service to the US. In 1921 it took over the operation of the Canadian Government's Bristol , Swansea , Canada service. The Great Depression brought the company misfortune and again reorganization. In 1939 the group was re-organised as Donaldson Brothers & Black Ltd and many of the subsidiary companies were terminated.The beginning of WW II found the company with a fleet of 21 ships 14 of which became war losses. After the war the company continued service but entered a period of slow decline until containerization brought an end in 1967. This book, a Centenary history, serves also as a genealogy of the Donaldson family.
