Content and structure area

Scope and content

A volume containing a transcript of Remarks on the Pre eminent Natural advantages of Milford Haven as the Western Terminal Port to the Railways of Great Britain 1846, appended to which are twenty-one pen-and-ink and pencil sketches of the South and West Wales coast, illustrating the narrative. The text evinces the author's knowledge of the navigational hazards of the South and West Wales coast and may be the work of David Propert, harbour-master at Milford Haven, a spirited voice in advocating Milford's case as the western terminal port to the railways. These remarks, much condensed and re-arranged, and without the sketches, were published as an anonymous pamphlet with the same title in 1847.
