Steam tugs of the SAR

This page is really a reproduction of my original SAR steam tugs page that existed on my old website. I do not recall where the data comes from although I suspect it was from “A Century of South African Steam Tugs” by David Reynolds. Because of the peculiarity of WordPress I am not able to have this page as a post as I cannot omit the sidebar with posts. Tug image is below the relevant data, some images open in a new tab.  The majority of the Black and White images are courtesy of Pete Bower, Alwyn Vintcent image by Dylan Knott,
