Subtitled "Drawings of Yorkshire's North Sea FIshery before the advent of steam"
This book is packed with 100 pen & ink drawings of working boats, and was originally published in 1933.
"It is a recording of things passed away. The conditions at sea are now absolutely different. Steam and the internal combustion engine have changed everything, lightened the heavy labor, and changed the work. There is plenty of hard work still in the trawlers, drifters, and cobles, but the sail and oar have gone forever." —from the foreword, written 20 December, 1932.
