Forgotten Motoring

A Miscellany on the Open Road by Ashley, Peter Code: 60438 Format: Hardback / 96 pages Publication date: 15/04/2021 Availability: Available. Usually dispatched from UK 1-2 business days Price: AU $24.99

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, Open Road packs an impressive cache of paraphernalia between its pages. A quaint, inspirational collection with delightful images at every turn of the road. No Sat Nav here. AUTHOR: Peter Ashley is an aficionado of British culture, responsible for the Unmitigated England trilogy, Preposterous Erections (his book on folly towers) and London Peculiars (one of the first books in ACC Art Books bestselling London series). Peter is renowned for his passion for the oddities that make this country unique, as Jonathan Meades has said, "He is the gatekeeper to several generations memories." SELLING POINTS: A nostalgic three-book series celebrating a slower, old-fashioned way of life Vintage automobile memorabilia from across Britain A delightful gift for car enthusiasts and memorabilia collectors.
