The beach men are perhaps best remembered as the men who manned the Norfolk and Suffolk lifeboats and were justly regarded as heroes; but in their salvage operations the hard bargains they drove when a ship was in difficulties often earned them the contrasting description of “longshore sharks” and “pirates.” Numerous photographs throughout. This copy is in excellent condition and very scarce in the United States.
