Front Cover: John Dickinson & Co’s Lord Howe is seen heading through the early morning mist on the Grand Junction Canal. The boat was one of four patriotically named craft built for the company and was used to carry paper and other products. Little evidence survives of the boat’s exact livery so a degree of educated guesswork has been used to create this image.
