About Owners
Court Line Ltd. - P. E. Haldinstein - Haldin & Philipps, London

Court Line was formed in London in 1905 by Philip Haldinstein with the purchase of one tramp steamer. By 1908 with the improvement in freight rates, more ships were ordered. During the Great War, Philip changed his name to Haldin, due to the public backlash against German sounding names. In the 1920s the fleet expanded quickly and by 1926 owned 26 ships. Laurence Philipps joined the company in 1929 to form Haldin & Philipps until 1948 when he retired and the company reverted to Haldin & Co.
Most of the fleet was laid up in the depression of the 1930s. At the outbreak of WWII, 24 ships were owned, but 13 of these were lost to enemy action. After the war, a rebuilding program was instituted, but by 1957 with a severe drop in freight rates, the building program stopped and several of the older ships were sold. The company then entered the bulk carrier and tanker trade, but by then Court Line had diversified away from shipping, notably into airlines, shipbuilding and ship repairing. These activities brought large cash flow problems and in 1974 the company went into liquidation and the remaining ships were sold.
