Book Summary:

The collision of the Princess Alice pleasure steamer with the Tyne collier Bywell Castle in the Thames in September 1878 resulted in Britain’s worst-ever inland waterway accident. Almost 650 Princess Alice passengers and crew died. Whole families were wiped out; many children were left orphans; parents childless. The nation wept. Joan Lock describes vividly the lead up to the accident, the disaster itself, and its aftermath. She then delves into the quarrels that the tragedy devolved into, as each side blamed the other during the extended inquiries to discover just how the accident happened and why so many people drowned. In the process, the author makes a startling discovery.

Book Summary:

One hundred and thirty-five years after the event, the Tay Bridge Disaster remains the single most catastrophic collapse of a British engineering structure. The fateful day in 1879 shook Britain and the world of engineering to their core and sent a nation into mourning for the seventy-five souls lost to the dark, freezing waters of the Tay River. Here Lumley gives the collapse a much wider perspective than the event of one night by delving into the lives of those lost to the disaster, both passengers and railway workers, against a background of a wider Scottish history. Packed full of personal tales and with more technical appendices for those that wish to further their technical knowledge, The Tay Bridge Disaster is a must read for anyone interested in this poignant event of Scottish and British history.
