Condition: Very Good in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.
Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: Steam Wagons in Focus is an album of over 260 photographs, mostly taken in the days when long distance deliveries by road relied on the steam wagon. The products of more than thirty manufacturers are featured in this volume some are shown at work, or as new vehicles proudly posed for their manufacturers official photograph, and the unfortunate few involved in accidents. While it is appreciated that the vehicle is the main subject, much can also be learned from the backgrounds of the photographs; the dress of the population of the day, the houses, streets, and above all the poor roads that existed during the first part of this century. The evolution of the steam wagon in pictures would aptly describe this fascinating collection of pictures.
