England's Motoring Heritage from the Air

door

Omschrijving - The arrival of aerial photography came at a particularly significant moment in terms of the visual appearance of England. This selection of photographs makes use of the Aerofilms collection, acquired by English Heritage in 2007 and subsequently digitised and made available on the Britain from Above website.

When Aerofilms fliers first went up in the skies in 1919, they captured a country that, with the obvious exception of some large scale structures such as aircraft hangers and munitions factories, had more or less been preserved in aspic in 1914.

What we are looking at in many of the earliest photographs in this book is essentially Edwardian England, with towns and villages generally quite compact, with fields reaching almost up to the High Streets in many cases, and little sign of the sprawl that was to engulf them in the 1920s and 30s.

The streets of many towns, especially the seaside resorts that provided the aerial photographers with many of their earliest subjects, have an orderly, almost pristine appearance to them, with the Victorian and Edwardian houses undisturbed by any out of place redevelopment.

The purpose of this book is to show just how radically that position changed over the ensuing half century. We trace the outward expansion of places brought about by the availability of the car: the new suburbs and ribbon development.

We see how new arterial roads came into being to meet the needs of motor transport and how the centre of cities start to be rebuilt to accommodate it. We witness the growth of sprawl around road junctions on the edge of built up areas and the arrival of new types of building there to service both cars and people: the filling station, the roadhouse.

We see how the car encouraged more people to go further afield for sport and pleasure: to the seaside, the races or to new forms of attractions such as the amusement park in the country. And we see how public transport changes over the period from trams to buses with the advent of new facilities such as bus stations. The scale of traffic congestion becomes apparent by the late 1930s. In addition, the impact on the landscape of large motor factories and provision for motor sport is made clear.

Contents: Preface - Introduction - England at the dawn of popular motoring - Trams and tram depots - Bus stations, garages and workshops - Motor vehicle factories - Garages and filling stations - Out for the day - By the seaside - The growth of motorised suburbia - The new roads - Rebuilding the cities - New towns, smaller towns and suburbs in the 1960s - Towards the motorway age.

Coventry's Motorcar Heritage

door

Omschrijving - Coventry, home of the cycle industry, was also to become the birthplace of the motor industry when the Daimler Company became the first in Britain to mass produce cars in the late 1890s. Spearheaded by H.J. Lawson, Coventry soon became a hub of motoring activity, and by the early 1900s was teaming with small and large companies, testing cars, motor-bicycles and tricycles around the local streets and surrounding country lanes.
Many of these companies had previously been established as cycle manufacturers, yet introduced engines to their cycle frames in various forms, as well as producing safer three- and four-wheeled experimental machines. Other companies were established solely as motor manufacturers, many were short-lived, but others would survive and prosper.

This new-found industry soon attracted a new type of worker to Coventry, specialised in mechanical engineering. These men and their families came from all parts of the UK and beyond, and made new lives for themselves in the city. Coventry has been home to well in excess of 100 independent motor manufacturers, but in recent years the city has suffered greatly with the loss of huge companied like Jaguar and Peugeot.

The legacy of many of these historic cars can, however, still be enjoyed through museums and private collections. This outstanding volume is illustrated with 200 archive photographs and ephemera from the collection held at Coventry Transport Museum, and is a valuable record of the motor companies and their machines, as well as the individuals who both founded and worked for these manufacturers.

Earls Court Motor Show : An Illustrated History

London's Emergency Service Vehicles

door

Omschrijving - Whether your interest is police, fire, ambulance, or associated emergency and rescue services, this fully illustrated book of nearly 200 images captures central London's many 999 services going about their daily business.
Photographed live from the streets of central London, many of the images vividly capture the drama of fast-moving response vehicles as emergency crews battle through London's congested streets.

Complementing vehicles from the Metropolitan Police Service, London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service (including the latter's cycle response unit and rapid response vehicles), are those of the British Transport Police, City of London Police, and Ministry of Defence Police.

London's Air Ambulance high-speed road vehicles, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, British Red Cross Society, St John Ambulance and private ambulance firms are also highlighted. Mounted and marine unit sections of the Metropolitan Police are not overlooked, nor are their red-coloured Diplomatic Protection Group units and Special Escort Group motorcycles escorting very important people - including royalty.

Dave Boulter offers a real flavour of the modern central London emergency scene, making this lavishly illustrated volume a must for anyone with an interest in emergency vehicles.

Police Stop! : Patrol and Response Vehicles in England and Wales

door

Omschrijving - Cars and vans in high-vis livery, racing to incidents with pulsating lights and blaring sirens are part of the everyday scene in our towns and on our highways.
This book outlines the fascinating story of vehicles in police service, and shows how police forces have always had to react to society's changes, particularly the growth of motor transport.
It explains how the enlargement of the police fleet came from a variety of causes including two world wars, developments in communications, shortage of manpower, new towns and the building of the motorway network.

Illustrations, many in full colour, show a progression from the time when the first police used horses and rowing boats, through the years of black and dark blue vehicles to a colourful era which saw police patrol cars and vans carry an extraordinary range of individual and generally attractive liveries, now all superseded but grouped, identified and compared here for the first time.

Readers who perhaps remember only their local schemes may be amazed to see the variety which was to be found across the two nations - and enjoy a parade of vehicles which ruled the road in their heyday yet so quickly have become memory.
Fasten your seat belts. Let's book on and pursue an intriguing story!

Modern British Ambulances

door

Omschrijving - The ambulance service uses a lot of specialised vehicles in the day-to-day role of providing emergency care, routine transport and emergency response. They range from the specially constructed ambulance bodies on commercial chassis to small car conversions. This collection of images show the range of different types of ambulances used in Britain in the twenty-first century.

As well as showing front line ambulances used by the NHS, voluntary aid societies, private ambulances, works ambulances and air ambulances all feature. Alongside all the services the different vehicle marques and coach builders are shown. Each photo shows a particular type of ambulance and, wherever possible, which company provided the conversion to an ambulance.

These show the changes over the past few years both in the boundary of ambulance services, as well as the design of ambulances that are used in Britain as they undertake their vital lifesaving work.
