Andrew Wiltshire enough in 2001 to acquire a superb collection of colour transparencies of shipping from C.C. Beazley who lived in Dagenham, Essex, and who sadly passed away in 2012. The slides comprised many ships both large and small taken along the River Thames. One of his favourite areas appeared to be the Royal Docks in the years 1968 to 1972. Needless to say there were some splendid shots of tugs, many of which are included in this book.

Initially the book takes a look at smaller lighterage tugs, many of which are performing the role for which they were originally built. Later on the book concentrates on tugs involved with ship-handling on the River Thames and within the various dock systems from the early 1960s right up until 2016.

Full colour, large, high quality images. 80 pages.
