"The boats on these machines are faithful reproductions of the gondolas used by the Doges of Venice in their grand procession as immortalised by Shakespeare and Byron. The costly, artistic carvings, and the magnificent paintings, executed by the Italian artists, excel all ever seen in this way and are worth a fortune in themselves." (Pat Collins, 1899).

Comprehensive history of these remarkable rides, now out of print and rare.
