Description

The AA has been present on Britain's roads for nearly a century. This book charts its rise and reflects the interest in collecting its memorabilia in the form of badges, books, models and signs, giving detailed dating information on car badges for the first time in the public domain. Collectors will also appreciate sections on memorabilia hitherto unknown by the general public. The illustrations are all from the AA archive or have been specially commissioned.show more
