Looking like an illustration from an old encyclopedia, this typewriter art features a steam tug named Brent.  A classic small Lighterage steam tug, Brent is the last surviving steam vessel of the Port of London Authority’s fleet and one of only three steam vessels left of many that were once in use on the River Thames and in the London Docks’ system. Highlighting Cook’s incredible talent in typewriter drawing is the artwork’s image of “Brent,” which the artist had unbelievably formed even though he could only fill in with black ink.
