THE STORY OF OUR CANALS a Vintage Ladybird Book from the Achievements Series 601. First Edition Matte Hardback 1975.
"From the opening of the Bridgewater Canal in 1761, until well into the 19th century, the canal system in Great Britain grew at a tremendous pace. At it's height, there were over 6,000 miles of navigable rivers and canals covering the length and breadth of the country, supplying the vital link between mines, farms, factories and ports."
"The story of how this was achieved, of the colourful characters who dug the canals and operated them, is here depicted in words and pictures, in all it's fascinating detail." (from the book)
