about this book

This interesting book covers over seventy ports and particular mention is made of the smaller ports which have made rapid advancement recently. It is much more than a catalogue of facts, and no one is better equipped for writing such a volume than Captain A. G. Course, the well-known author and broadcaster.

He relates an historical background for each port mentioned and provides such valuable information as dock areas, length of quays and depths of water available, annual tonnages and descriptions of imports and exports handled. Port management and operation, cargo handling and mechanisation, port labour and National Dock Labour Corporation are some of the other subjects covered with over 40 excellent photographs.
