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.

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. No Sat Nav here.
