It was on 30th October 1959 that the late Professor Alan Robinson called a meeting in Central London that led to the formation of our Society.

To commemorate this auspicious occasion, two publications have been crafted to tell our story, one a hardback book and the other a DVD. Contributions from many members have been carefully collated to produce worthy souvenirs of our Diamond Anniversary.

"A Peep into the Past" on-line was introduced to mark the 50th anniversary of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society's journal "Paddle Wheels". You can view the story of paddle steamers and the Society through the pages of "Paddle Wheels" starting with the very first issue here.
