Indeed this is one of the "must have" books for any crane enthusiast! It was, as you say, written by Bill Bishop, and many of the photos were supplied by S C Townroe. Bill Bishop, who sadly is no longer with us, started his career with the Fratton breakdown gang and later moved to Eastleig...

One of the reasons that we decided to set up this forum was to try to allow us - the people who now operate 'heritage' cranes - to establish contact with you - the people who used to use them in anger. We realise that there are relatively few of the 'real' cr...
