BeschreibungThis richly illustrated book describes how British royalty has travelled since the invention of steam.
PortraitPeter Pigott's idea for this book began when, as a boy, he saw Prince Philip being driven through town and was more interested in the Cadillac convertible than the royal passenger. Canada's foremost aviation author, with 12 books to his credit, Pigott works in Ottawa on Sussex Drive, an ideal location for viewing royal transports.
Pressestimmen"An eye-catching reference book packed with enough facts and specifications to satisfy the technophile and richly illustrated with rare archival photos of 150 years of royal travel through the Commonwealth, this book is a fitting historical account of the technological development and advancement of transport through the last century.
