For over 150 years, pleasure steamers and paddle steamers operated on day trips from the Yorkshire coastal resorts, sailing from Scarborough, Whitby and Bridlington up and down the coast, giving the day tripper a taste of life aboard in exchange for a few shillings. From the Bilsdale, Frenchman, Yorkshireman, Coronia and the other steamers that served the Yorkshire Coast, Andrew Gladwell presents a unique glimpse of these tourist steamers at the peak of their careers in the period from the 1900s to the 1960s. He tells the story of the pleasure steamers that once plied these waters, using many rare and previously unpublished images of the ships and the resorts they served. Learn of the musicians that would once perform aboard, see the steamers cruising the dramatic coastline and learn about the paddle and pleasure steamer captains and crew that worked the Yorkshire coast.
