Description

Illustrated with a collection of more than 300 photographs, this publication covers the development of a much loved type of vessel, the ‘classic’ cross channel or short-sea passenger ferry, often described as a liner in miniature. From the mid-nineteenth century, paddle ferries slowly evolved into screw-driven steamers, but it was the advent of the steam turbine and the construction of the railway steamers The Queen and theĀ Brighton in 1903 that caught the attention of the world. Similarly-propelled ships multiplied and soon sailedĀ to the Antipodes, Japan, the Mediterranean and North America. This book takes you from the beginning of the ‘classic’ passenger ferry to their demise in the 1960s brought on by the introduction of the specialised car ferry.
