Illustrated. 8vo, red cloth with gilt titles to spine. Cohen, The River and Firth of Clyde, 1549-1993: A Selective Bibliography p.184. "In contrast to the halcyon years of the Edwardian era, the period of Clyde steamboat history, falling roughly in the middle of the reign of Queen Victoria, is now beyond the ken of any living person. The picture which emerges is very different from that of the later period when railway companies dominated the scene. Private steamer owners controlled most services, and early, over-confident attempts by Scottish railways to capture the traffic met at best with indifferent success and at worst with ignominious failure. The sixties and seventies saw the high noon of 'all theway' steamboat services down river from Glasgow to the coast, as thousands of citizens, rich and poor, made annually for their favourite watering pla ces during teh Fair Holidays. It was not until the egihties that the greater convenience of new rail and steamer routes and the pollution of the rivercombined to erode a trade on which many steamboat proprietors had previous ly flourished." - from the dust jacket.

A volume in the Images of Our Past series.

Joan Murray Payzant (b. February 4, 1925, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia - d. August 14, 2013, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

Outlining the triumphs and tragedies of the ever-present Halifax-Dartmouth ferry service, this is largely a revision of Payzant's Like a Weaver's Shuttle.

"For 250 years now, ferries have plied the waters of Halifax Harbour, transporting people, vehicles, and goods between the two historic communities flourishing on its banks. For the first 65 years, the service was conducted in open boats driven by oars, sails, or hand-cranked paddlewheels. Later, the novel idea of using horsepower -- eight horses turning a great wheel on the deck -- was adopted, until finally steam engines made their debut in 1830.

We Love to Ride the Ferry is an illustrated re-presentation of the classic book by Joan and Peter Payzant, Like a Weaver's Shuttle , published in 1979. It chronicles the innovative approaches taken by individuals and companies to provide a connection between peninsular Halifax and mainland Dartmouth, as well as the gradual evolution of the Metropolitan Authority into Metro Transit after the Halifax region was amalgamated. Entertaining, informative, anecdotal, this book is a must-read for history and ferry buffs, avid readers, and anyone who loves to ride the ferry." - from rear.

(6),[7]-228,(4) + 16 pages of illustrations, some in colour. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. 'Under Canadian Pacific's red-and-white-checkered flag, the company's founders, George Stephen and William C. Van Horne, created a rail-/ sea service from Liverpool to Hong Kong. Boasting sternwheelers, Great Lakes bulk carriers, ferries, and luxurious ocean-going liner leviathans, the Canadian Pacific shipping line sailed around the globe. In both world wars theentire fleet served gallantly as Allied troop carriers. After the Second W orld War, the company staved off the realities of the jet age for as long as it could, replacing liners with container ships, until what was left of the legendary maritime operation was sold off in 2005. With a witty and informative style, author Peter Pigott evokes not only the nostalgic heyday of ocean travel but reveals a slice of almost-forgotten Canadiana. From the stifling steerage quarters of immigrant ships to the elegant drawing rooms ofnautical titans such as the ill-fated Empress of Ireland and the Empress o f Asia, from U-boat-haunted convoys to container ships, shore dwellers and old salts alike will be delighted with Sailing Seven Seas." - from front djflap.
