cover illustration
From 'Skimpings: When Britain Built the World': 'First Vulcan loco coming aboard'. A rather 'moody' view through the ship's rigging and mist of the first of the Vulcan 2-8-2s being lifted off the quayside and swung aboard. Notice another spreader bar ready for use upon which is written 'Beyer Peacock & Co. Ltd Manchester'. This may have been used to lift on the 0-8-0s, one of which can be seen left foreground already onboard.
