Sail & Steam
A Century of Maritime Enterprise, 1840-1935 : Photographs From the National Maritime Museum, GreenwichBook - 1993
A great collection of photographs, with detailed captions, of people connected with the sea--as well as the ships and boats. The text details periods and trades connected with the sea. On the background of sea commerce and the many (British in this case) who protected it. John Falconer does a thorough job of describing the British Isles peoples' relationships with the sea with details in language understandable by the layman.
