Electric Boats on the Thames 1889-1914
by Edward Hawthorne
For the electric boat builder specifically, and the builder of antique powerboats generally. Edwardian era launches of the River Thames in England are pictured, mostly of the past but some of the present, restored or replicated. This thoroughly researched illustrated history describes the first electric motors, the boatyards, the variety of boats, and the economics of rental electric boat fleets.
Illustrations of these elegant boats are available nowhere else. Builders of electric, steam or motor boats will learn from the line drawings and photos.
