'By the 1890s the boom riverboat era had passed; now there was only the steady flap of the paddles of regular steamers.  The Murray, however, continued to play a vital role for the town's existence - not the least for its pleasure facilities for the growing tourism of today.  major reconstruction projects have made the town once again the centre of attention of Australia's waterway history, recaptured here by Ian Blyth's text and Arno Roger-Genersh's drawings.'
