Book Bristol tugs in colour

| |

Coastal Shipping Publications recently published "Bristol Tugs in Colour (Volume 1)", written by Bernard McCall. This latest Tugs pictorial album contains a selection of stunning colour photographs of tugs that have visited ports in the Bristol area over the last fifty years. Volume 1 includes tugs used for ship handling and in the fleets of C J King and Cory/Wijsmuller/Svitzer. Each photograph is accompanied by an informative caption. This first volume begins with the tugs of C J King. It then moves on to the larger tugs that have worked in the ports and port approaches. Finally there is a section that sees the tugs at work. Within each section, tugs are seen approximately in date order of construction but this sequence is broken to allow us to see the same tug in various liveries. "Bristol Tugs in Colour (Volume 1)" (ISBN 978-1-902953-70-0) is a softback book, small size, of 64 pages, lavishly illustrated. The price is £9.95 plus £1.75 European postage.
