Description

A book on the development and establishment of what we know now as Caledonian MacBrayne. August 2012 marked the bicentenary of the pioneering voyage on the Clyde of Europe’s first sea-going commercial steam ship, the Comet. From the elegant paddle steamers of the nineteenth century to today’s modern ferries, this volume examines in detail the ships, the companies and the social and cultural changes they helped bring about. Jointly authored by Donald E. Meek, a leading expert on Hebridean culture and a life-long steamer and ferry enthusiast, and Bruce Peter, a well-known writer on modern ship design. It is lavishly illustrated with over 200 illustrations and is a must for anyone interested in the history of steamer services in Scotland and modern short sea shipping in general. Full colour and black & white photography.
