The Story of Passenger Transport in Britain - J Joyce

Hardback - Very Good Condition


In this book the author has presented a short, and not too formal, outline history of the development of public transport in England. The carriers wagon, the stage-coach and the mail-coach brought to the nation a network of public transport and they achieved a high standard of organisation before they were eclipsed by the railway which, in its turn, suffered from the competition of the motor-bus and motor-coach. The author has illustrated, with the aid of contemporary writings, just what it was like to ride in a stage-coach or on the early railways, horse-buses or tramcars. He has shown how long the journeys took, the sort of vehicles people rode in, how much their travelling cost and with what degree of comfort, discomfort, or even peril, they travelled.
