Stroud, 1st.ed., 2010. 120 pp., profusely illustrated with photographs, etc. Pict. c.c., 25 x 23cm. FINE. P. & A. Campbell’s celebrated fleet of ‘White Funnel’ steamers enjoyed a long association with the south coast of England and the Bristol Channel, from the 1880s to the 1950s. The author, an authority on these excursion steamers, presents rare and hitherto unpublished images from the archives of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society. They hail from golden Victorian days to the 1930s and on through the war years of the 1940s to the company’s decline in the 1950s. Includes accounts of wartime naval service.
