by Coombes, Robin

Edinburgh History Tour

Paperback
by Hanson, Liz
The profile of Edinburgh was born of a marriage between nature's sculpture and man's architecture. The epicentre is Castle Rock - a volcanic plug - which constantly draws the eye from all parts of the city.

That Edinburgh is b...

East End Pubs

Paperback
by Homer, Johnny
There are few more quintessentially English experiences than supping a pint of ale in a centuries-old public house, where the walls could tell you stories. The East End of London is awash with such places, remarkably so in some respects, given the destruction wreaked by the Great Fire of London, Second World War bombs and post-war planners. Some were around before Shakespeare; others are comparatively recen...

British Paddle Steamers The Twilight Years

Paperback
by Megoran, John
In the aftermath of the Second World War, paddle steamers in Britain initially did rather well, with four new ones built between 1946 and 1953 and about sixty still in service nationwide. By 1955 this tide of optimism had turned and from then on it was downhill all the way.
