Forgotten Motoring : A Miscellany on the Open Road, Hardback Book

Forgotten Motoring : A Miscellany on the Open Road Hardback



As the world speeds up, as technology takes over, it is worth remembering how we used to live.

This three-book series is a nostalgic hymn to an era when life was slower: a meandering ramble through the British countryside by bicycle, automobile and train. This evocative volume gathers British motoring memorabilia, transporting us back to a time when roads were filled with bulbous Austin Somersets, humpbacked Standard Vanguards and unique road signs.

Between cigarette cards advocating road safety, vintage motoring maps and black-and-white photos of classic cars in their prime, Forgotten Motoring packs an impressive cache of paraphernalia between its pages.

A quaint, inspirational collection with delightful images at every turn of the road.
