‘Andrew’s book is bursting with photographs – piers packed with people queuing for their place on board, plumes of steam decorating coastal landscapes accompanied with a plethora of the engines cutting their way through the waves. They paint a vivid picture.’ Daily Echo Bournemouth, 24th September 2014
