-PADDLEWHEELS is the quarterly magazine of the Paddle Steamer
Presevation Society and is only available to members. It is a well
produced magazine dealing with the running of the three ships owned
and preserved by the society along with historical and preservation
articles dealing with paddlers world wide. If you look up the PSPS
