Cross Channel and Short Sea Ferries

An Illustrated History

Ambrose Greenway

Before the advent of the car ferry, Britain served passengers on the short crossings to the Continent and Ireland with a fleet of small ferries or scaled-down liners. This history, featuring more than 300 photos, describes the success of these vessels, which proliferated on British coastal routes and spread to other parts of the world from the early 19th century, and examines how the designs evolved from paddle steamers to screw-driven craft and finally diesel-powered ships by the early 20th century.
