White Funnel Steamers by Chris Collard
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The White Funnel Fleet of P&A Campbell had a long and successful association with England's south coast, with the company's Bristol Channel steamer excursions perhaps being their best-known operation. Covering the period from the 1880s to the 1950s, from the tentative beginnings when brothers Alexander and Peter Campbell took up the challenge of the busy and tempestuous Bristol Channel, this beautifully illustrated history - using many rare and previously unpublished images from the archives of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society - takes the reader through the golden years of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the difficult years of the 1920s and 1930s, and the resurgence of the late 1940s before the harsh economic pressures of the 1950s led to the company's decline. Including heart-warming stories from the two world wars, when the ships donned warship grey and swept the sea lanes for mines, as well as fascinating 'White Funnel Trivia', this book evokes the hey-day of the White Funnel Steamers and their enduring appeal.
