A History of British Paddle Steamers

Details

There is a huge following among enthusiasts and the general public for the old paddle steamers that were once a familiar sight in British waters, both inland and around the coast. To cater for this interest the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society has collected a huge amount of material relating to the paddle steamers - posters, photographs, postcards, publicity material, film and recorded material etc. The world famous Waverley is the last active ocean going paddle steamer in existence and draws huge crowds around the country, providing a glimpse of a bygone age of travel. The Kingswear Castle still sails around the Thames Estuary on pleasure cruises, and the world's smallest paddle steamer Monarch still delights passengers around the Isle of Wight. This book explores the history of paddle steamers around Britain with a mixture of evocative photographs, nostalgic period publicity material and other memorabilia.
