Southampton is one of the most important maritime centres in the UK - `the Gateway to the World', as it is often described. The docks is the cornerstone of the city, both past and present. Here Andrew Britton explores this rich history. From four-funnelled liners and flying boats to power stations and refineries, this volume depicts all that happened in the docks, the living heartbeat of the city. Rare old photographs, previously unpublished behind-the-scenes shots of the dock at work, of captain's logbooks and tickets - even some ships' menus -all evoke the authentic flavour of dock life. Southampton Docks is a real treat for anyone interested in the city and its maritime heritage.
