    The late 1950s, twilight years of the British Empire, saw the end of the era of the 'tramp steamer' - coal-burning merchant ships that 'tramped' from port to port in the days before bulk carriers, hunting for any cargo that needed hauling to any place.

  • Breverton's Nautical Curiositiesby Terry Breverton; Terry Breverton

    Quercus Publishing 2010; US$ 19.08

    Breverton's Nautical Curiosities is about ships, people and the sea.
