Amberley, Stroud, 1st.ed., 2012. 128 pp., profusely illustrated with photos &c. (some cold.) Pict. c.c., 23 x 16cm. FINE. The much-loved Liverpool & North Wales Steamship Company and their three steamers of the 1950s & 1960s : ST. TUDNO, ST. SEIRIOL, and ST. TRILLO, have long since disappeared from the Mersey and Menai Straits and the waters in between, but these pleasure steamers are not forgotten by those who can remember them. This book recalls in word and picture the heyday of the paddle steamer, the arrival of the turbine, the final years in the early 1960s, and the short revival of service under Campbell’s houseflag.
