The Story of the Tyne Tugs

Extract from the Smith's Dock Journal of May 1933

"The story of the old Tyne tugs has never been written, and in the limited space at our disposal we shall write briefly of the first tugs on the Tyne, tell how they were built and describe their unique engines, the construction of which heralded an era of marine engine building from which our modern marine engineering industry has developed."
