Shaw Savill & Albion identified strongly with New Zealand by flying a slightly modified version of the flag of the United Tribes of New Zealand, and by naming its ships after the principal provinces and ports. In the 1870s David De Maus photographed hundreds of ships alongside Shaw Savill’s export shed at Dunedin’s Port Chalmers.
