Michael Stammers tells the history of the many Liverpool sailing ships from the age of slavery to the 1930s. Even after the advent of steam propulsion, sail still ruled in parts of the world and Liverpool was no exception. Four-masted barques such as Olivebank and Celtic Glen were a common sight in the dock system and were a stunning sight to behold. Filled with many majestic images of sailing vessels, "Liverpool Sailing Ships" is a fantastic look back at the time when sail was King in Liverpool.
Michael Stammers is the curator emeritus of the Merseyside Maritime Museum. He is a prolific writer on maritime subjects and this is his third books for Tempus Publishing. He lives in Liverpool, Britain's greatest maritime city.
