SKU: am302 Categories: ,


Tales of a Thames Lighterman, by Ernest G Murray.

When the last London Lighterman’s as dead as a dodo, stuffed under glass in the new Dockland Museum, with his Waterman’s badge, cloth cap and choker, tourists may wonder what he was, what he did, and where he went. This is his story – a tale of the Thames in days past: of its people, parties, wharves and docks, coffee shops and pubs, of dear Rosie, and other, different ways.

This book is incredibly rare and this is probably one of the only copies on the market.
