Description
"The Victorians and Edwardians on the Move" reveals how the Victorians and Edwardians moved around their towns, their cities and their country. From Shanks's pony to the dawn of the motor car, it explores the relationship between developing transport systems and the working and social lives of Britons between 1840 and 1910. The increasing ease of transport changed how the Victorians and Edwardians viewed their country, and had a huge impact on every aspect of their lives. Through a rich collection of Victorian photographs and Edwardian postcards, this book tells their story.
