Colourful menagerie of Thames vessels

Thames Shipping in Colour, by Andrew Wiltshire

cover_thames_shipping_in_colour.jpgRanging from tugs to bucket dredgers to huge cargo-liners, if there's a ship of note that has passed down the Thames since the early 20th century, Andrew Wiltshire has probably written about it.

With colour pictures to go along with well written histories and descriptions, this book shows off the grandest of ships and the most unassuming smaller vessels. On each page there is something from the other side of the world or of wildly different design.
