100 Years of Horse Racing
This book provides a fascinating insight into the stars, horses and spectators of a hundred years of this much loved sport. It offers a visual tribute to the 20th Century, with photographs from PA Photos' archives. It is a beautiful gift idea, alone or part of this invaluable series. This book offers a visual history of horse racing - the sport of kings. It contains 300 photographs from PA Photos' huge archives, spanning the whole of the 20th Century. Fans of horse racing will find this book an essential and compelling addition to their shelves - a chance to see the people, the horses and to witness the great moments of the last hundred years of their sport in Britain. The general reader will be equally fascinated by the unique insight into our recent history that these pictures provide: to modern eyes, the crowds and backgrounds are as interesting as the subjects themselves.
