If the railway created the Victorian seaside resorts by bringing visitors from the cities, the paddle steamer entertained them when they got there, providing pleasure trips for tourists as well as comfortable and affordable travel on coastal routes. With many photographs, posters and other illustrative material, this history of paddle-propelled steamers in British waters explores their development and impact during the 19th and early 20th centuries as well as their role in the wars and later decline.
