Stoker, D. & S. (2011) Adventures of the Hebe Amberley Publishing
This is an innocent and often delightful tale of a journey along the working waterways during the inter-war period, enriched by a number of beguiling photographs and postcards of what might be seen as a halycon age before large-scale recreational boating and the rapid decline of commercial carrying.
For me it also prompted thoughts about a simpler approach of enjoying the waterways, without the enormous expense of todays narrowboats.
Why not scull, sail or row? Could it still be done? (Also see ‘A Plea for Fresh Thinking’)
