Lloyd Triestino India. Express Service to Bombay via Italy (circa 1938)
Marcello Dudovich (1878-1962)
Founded as Österreichischer Lloyd (or "Austrian Lloyd") in 1836, the company became one of the world's biggest shipping companies by managing most overseas trade and passenger travel of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918. The Austrian Lloyd ran regular services from Trieste at the top of the Adriatic Sea to the Near East, India, China and the Far East, Brazil, the US and Northern Europe. Following the end of WW1, the company rebranded as Lloyd Triestino when the city of Trieste became part of Italy.
