This review is from: A Queen Is Crowned [DVD] (DVD)
Remember being taken to the cinema with the school to see this. First time cameras allowed to film the Coronation & we see a young beautiful Queen being crowned. The Elizabethan age had arrived & how post war Britain needed that boost of future hope.

I think this was banned in UK by the authorities & most were published in the USA as this original version was that I received. Inside Britain's security services. A bargain price too !

5.0 out of 5 stars Walk London 1861 (Published 1862), 30 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This facsimile gem allows a time travel tour of London & environs in 1861 including Crystal Palace at Sydenham. Most interesting was the taxi fares pre motorised transport & various boat trips on the Thames plus other information. Highly recommended for lovers of this great city & surrounding areas. Easy to pick up & open at any page, sort of pocket sized.

5.0 out of 5 stars Britain's IRBM, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Britain's failed "Blue Steak" project & not wanting to fall behind in the technology race, we received this WMD from the USA.
The USA needed us to protect them while they built their silo based ICBM's. As someone who worked on "Thor" during the "Cuban Missile Crisis" I was amazed at the wealth of research this author had amassed.

This solid guide book has it all including a handy laminated map at the back. I first went to the local library to check it out & found a pub that I had lost since 1967 & had been trying to locate all these years. You can enjoy London without actually going there & great illustrations.
