Coastal Shipping Publications recently published “Thames Tugs in Colour” , written by Andrew Wiltshire. This latest tugs pictorial album containers a selection of stunning colour photographs of Thames tugs. Each photograph accompanied by ab informative caption. Author Andrew Wiltshire acquired a superb collection of colour transparencies of shipping from C C Beazley who lived in Dagenham, Essex. The slides comprised many ships both large and small taken along the River Thames. One of his favourite areas appeared to be the Royal Docks in the years 1968 to 1972. The work of several other photographers is also included. Initially the book takes a look at smaller lighterage tugs. Later on the book concentrates on tugs involved with ship-handling on the River Tames and within the various dock systems from the early 1960s richt up until 2016.
