Description

At first motoring was a sport, the car a plaything of the rich - think King Edward and Mr Toad. Soon motor transport - its value confirmed many times over in the war - became central to the economy. The automobile became an instrument of civilisation and rejuvenated countryside, towns and villages left derelict by agricultural depression. The car was a symbol of individual liberty from men - and women; it was glamorous, stylish and sexy too.show more
