François Drémeaux offers an evocation of the Messageries Maritimes liners

For more than a century, from the 1860s until the 1970s, the silhouette of the Messageries Maritimes liners was a familiar sight in Hong Kong harbour.

François Drémeaux, a historian specialising in social, colonial and maritime history at the University of Le Havre-Normandie, offers an evocation of this ambitious maritime enterprise through a reconstructed crossing between Marseille and Yokohama. Of course, the Hong Kong call, which was strategic for the company, will be discussed at length.

By playing on the scales, the historian will talk about the close links between imperial and maritime policies, he will retrace the route of some prestigious liners and will touch on some aspects of life on board.
