Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. A dozen rivers and creeks radiate off Falmouth Bay and the Carrick Roadstead to form the west country's largest estuary and provide over sixty miles of navigable waterway amidst the beautiful scenery of south Cornwall. Quays and landings on the estuary were once served by distinctive, locally built passenger steamer fleets. Over 130 of these vessels and the passenger services they maintained, are recorded, as well as the crews and owners. Not just are the steamboats themselves described, but also the river history and the steamers' place in the social history of the district. Quantity Available: 1.
