I bought this to use as a Language Change text to aid with A-level teaching, so as such it's very useful. Otherwise I guess it's a nostalgia -inducing curio, but as such it's nicely bound and presented and jam-packed with information.
As in Top ten for Rio this was the other part of present for our friends going on South America cruise - they have the present early and sharing with friends also going on cruise and finding it fascinating which was what the present was all about and also to see how things have changed in the intervening years. Had a wee look myself and loved all information regarding cables and steam ship companies - an era long gone but not, as yet, forgotten!!
