During Queen Victoria's reign, the world of travel was opened to everyone to an unprecedented extent. The railways were just coming into their own when she came to the throne, and during her reign they would completely change the habits of the nation. Fresh produce from Scotland could be in London within hours, and people could travel farther afield and faster than ever before. Trams were introduced-first horse-drawn, then steam, and eventually electric - and before 1900 steam and petrol-driven private cars began to appear. To cater for this huge growth in transportation, thousands of miles of railway were laid, new roads, bridges and steamers were built and brought into service, and by the turn of the century men had also taken to the air. This book, through a rich collection of images, most of them tinted, tells the story of Britain's Victorian and Edwardian transport revolution.

The increasing ease of transport changed how the Victorians and Edwardians viewed their country, and had a huge impact on every aspect of their lives.
