Humber Waterways: Vol II: Paperback: Tempus Publishing Ltd: 9780752443225: 01 Aug 2007: Covering the craft of the Humber's inland waterways, this book tells the story of the dry cargo barges that plied the waters from the early days in the seventeenth century, through their flourishing heyday, to the gradual decline in the twentieth century after the railways and roads took prominence. This book completes Mike Taylor's three-volume coverage of craft on the Humber's inland waterways. Volume one dealt with tugs and towing barges and volume two with tanker barges. This final instalment concentrates on the story of the dry cargo barges that plied the Humber waterways from the early days in the seventeenth century, through their flourishing heyday, to their gradual decline due to the proliferation of roads and railways. From time immemorial barges have afforded a means of moving dry cargoes from place to place on rivers and estuaries, carrying many times the weight of goods that were transported by cart or packhorse. A thriving trading network was in place on the Humber waterways well before the start of the twentieth century and continued to prosper despite the construction of roads and the coming of railways. Although the use of waterways transport did eventually start to subside, some still exists today. In this detailed history, a wealth of illustrations describe the development of dry cargo carrying on the Humber waterway from the days of unpowered craft through to the self-propelled vessels and push-towed craft of later times, covering keels, sloops, pull-towed vessels and motorised dumb barges.
