Customer Review

on 21 January 2013
This book combines my love of the car along with another favourite, architecture. Surprising how far the garage, car saleroom goes back, and it is great to see that a fair proportion of the early buildings are still in existence with preservation orders to protect them. This large volume might be classed as a coffee table book, to be dipped into again and again with many areas of the motor industry covered. The central theme is the car, with manufacturing, sales, maintenance, filling up, parking, scrapping,
driving around the country, hospitality, traffic in towns, and all the attendant buildings or site's involved.
The text is very informative, and photography, both old picture's in black and white together with modern colour is very good. We probably take for granted the modern filling station or service centre, but it great to understand how these have evolved over the last century +. Excellent book.
