CHARLES HADFIELD CANAL MAN AND MORE
Written by Joseph Boughey.
Stock no. 2124196
Published by Sutton Publishing. 1st 1998. Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper.
Charles Hadfield is well known for his accurate and detailed canal histories, but his contribution was more than that of a mere chronicler of waterways. This book combines a detailed critical study of Charles's work in making and developing canal history with his own selected memoirs of other aspects of a busy and complex life. Charles Hadfield contributed greatly to the growth of a post-war literature of transport history and industrial archaeology. But he also helped to make canal history; without him, many of Britain's historic amenity waterways might well have closed with freight use and development even more limited than it is today. B/w photos. ISBN: 07509110526.
