Description

Picture this: The year is 1895, and you live in a small town in New England. There are only three streets in your town, and none of them are paved. People walk or ride horses to get around. Yet times are changing fast. One day the town doctor amazes everyone by driving down Main Street in a horseless carriage. The future has arrived! Period artwork can be a colorful way to explore the details of daily life from times past. The Picture That! series is back with Transportation by Land, Sea and Air. Using the captivating paintings of Pierre Auguste Renoir, Winslow Homer, Diego Rivera, and many others, this rich and captivating book traces the history of transportation from horses and sailing ships to trains, planes, and automobiles.show more
