Description

Travel back to the golden age of flying from 1920 to 1950, when ...- A primitive means of short-haul travel was transformed into a sophisticated intercontinental air service, with striking modern airports and impressive new designs of aircraft making flying an experience unlike any other mode of transport. - Air travel, although exclusive, also touched everybody's life in film plots and novels, advertising stunts and the introduction of air mail. This all-new book explores all aspects of air travel (not just aircraft) including airport architecture and advertising together with its influence on popular culture. Many of the pictures are in colour, so as to transport you back more vividly. Most of them have not seen the light of day since they were first published. The author is a seasoned writer on technical and historical subjects. He has authored five other books for Capital Transport Publishing.show more
