Before a bridge was built across the Humber in 1981, ferries had provided the link between East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Drawing on archive photographs, ephemera and personal accounts, this illustrated story of the services that plied the waters focuses on the paddle steamers that operated on the river from 1814 up until the 1970s, and in particular on the last vessels in service, Tattershall Castle, Lincoln Castle and Wingfield Castle.
