Tony Byfield is one of the last surviving London canal tractor drivers. In the 1950s, miniature diesel tractors were introduced to the towpath to replace horses, working short-distance barge traffic around London's waterways. Taken from interviews and oral history recordings, this book is an account of his life and times on the London canals and is a vivid account of a previously little-documented story.
