AUTHOR: Tom Tyler
When Motoring Was Fun
When Motoring Was Fun
  • Description
  • Related

Tom Tyler is a self-confessed auto-nut, at least as enthusiastic as Mr Toad, and a good deal more knowledgeable. In this book he has selected over 270 photographs of the golden period of motoring, when the open road beckoned the intrepid motorist and when motoring truly was fun! In part humorous, but always historically accurate, the author charts the Golden Years of the motorised vehicle from 1885 to the 1950s, after which traffic regulations and overcrowding saw the joy of motoring disappear in clouds of smoke.

Subjects include: TheVeterans 1885-1904 • The Car Comes of Age • Cars Go toWar • Sporty Boys at Play •The Car Goes on Holiday • Bits the Drop Off and Other Accidents •The Second Hand Car Dealer • The Garage in Town and Country • Luggage and Other Cargo

Tom Tyler was born in South Devon just before the Second World War, and was always keenly interested in all forms of transport. After studying history at university, he has been fascinated by the rapid and at times extraordinary development of transport down the centuries, and in particular during his own lifetime. An interest in vintage cars, models of all sorts, and a collection of wooden transport jigsaw puzzles helps to keep the subject always under consideration. Memories of transport past, with major challenges and minor mishaps, bring an element of humour to the subject, only some of which could be recorded in this book!,/p>
