A history of Cross-channel travel
THIS short history of the Channel Crossing since the introduction of steam about one hundred and ten years ago makes no pretension to break fresh ground; but seeks rather to present the subject from the viewpoint of human interest. Quotations from contemporary journals and authors have been freely introduced in order to enliven the narrative.
Born and bred on the Kent coast and having a close family association with the London, Chatham & Dover Railway, I have been able to draw on my own personal knowledge of the period following the working union of the South-Eastern and Chatham Railways in 1899.
The title of the book is borrowed from the inscription over the portal of Victoria Station (Chatham Section); and it is my hope that the reader, when next he boards the Continental Boat-train, will no longer regard his journey to the coast and across the Channel as merely a tedious prelude to a well-earned vacation, but will properly appreciate his swift and comfortable passage as the product of efficient organization, based on more than a hundred years of experience and development.
In conclusion, I would like to acknowledge gratefully the kind and courteous help given me by the Staff of the British Transport Commission, who have supplied many of the photographs which illustrate the text.
