In the early 1900s Goldsmiths operated the largest fleet of of sailing barges in the 'seeking' trade on the south and east coast of the United Kingdom. First in in the field with standardised craft they carried cargos for other companies in addition to their own cargos. The business endured from the mid-1800s for over 100 years. This is the story of the people, the company, the barges and motor coasters. Excellent illustrations and printed on top quality coasted paper.
