Summary
100 Years of Motoring is essentially the story of people - the people who created the automobile, those who crusaded for it in the early days (and those who sought to stamp it out), those who raced with it, wrote about it, made films of it. Through photographs, paintings, engravings, cartoons, posters and advertisements this book traces our intimate relationship with the car, its impact on society, on the countryside, the city, tourism, courtship, the economy.--Publisher's description
