Following the scanning of some 45,000 slides into jpeg images covering the period 1966 to 2006 it was noted that reefer ships featured prominently. Nearly 500 different vessels photographed mostly around the Thames, Medway, Dover, and some European ports. From this around 170 ships are depicted in this book showing the sleek lines and colour schemes of the variety of ships seen & photographed, many of which are long gone.
Following the success of the previous books, and with so much more material available, the author received many requests to compile another book, but not just about shipping on the River Thames but to include shipping on the River Medway. To give as much variety as possible he has tried to not only depict ships of yesteryear but also many of the different types of vessels now using the various terminals and jetties.
