Overview


From the launch in 1838 of Brunel's 'Great Western' to the latest Cunard liner 'Queen Mary 2', the age of the tranatlantic liner is still very much alive. By the late 19th century the golden age of the liners was underway and the scene set for a growth and later decline in this luxury form of travel. In this publication the authors have worked together to produce a pictorial tribute to this period in maritime history, drawing upon Robert McDougall's extensive collection of postcards and memorabilia, plus text and captions. 176 colour and 105 b/w reproductions of archive photos and postcards. 128 pages. Hardback

Meet the Author

Martin Pegg from an early age showed an interest in aviation history and World War II, particularly the operations of the Luftwaffe's dive-bomber, ground-attack and anti-tank units. In the course of his research, which included detailed correspondence and interviews with many former Luftwaffe air and ground personnel, Pegg discovered a substantial quantity of revealing new information, which served to dispel many inaccurate myths. He now works full-time as an aviation editor. He is a keen aircraft modeler and has won International Plastic Modelers Society awards for his work.
