    London As It Was

    by Araf Chohan

    From the vast collection of Araf Chohan, this book of historic London scenes bring back to life the sights and sounds of the city when the tram was king, when streets bustled with people wearing Edwardian dress, and when the River Thames was a vibrant and busy transport route for the many craft and merchant ships of the day.

    London As It Was includes places such as Hyde Park, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Oxford Street, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Piccadilly Circus, Tower Bridge and the city’s railways stations.

    The Herald nevertheless soldiered on with a variety of airlines worldwide until the 1990s, with a significant fondness from crews, passengers and those who had been involved in the aircraft s development.

    This book looks back at the development and life of the Herald and the people who flew it.

    Lost Airline Colours of Europe Timelines

    by Matt Falcus

    Airlines the world over delight in showcasing attractive liveries on their aircraft which reflect their branding and sense of style to the travelling public and those on the ground. The nature of the airline industry means that the colour schemes and familiar names we are used to in our skies often change or disappear for good.

    This book traces many of the schemes which were familiar across Europe, including national carriers, leisure airlines from the holiday charter boom, and regional airlines feeding our smaller airports. Many airlines in these pages have now been lost forever, and others continue in a completely revised scheme.

    You’ll also see plenty of classic old airliners, such as the Caravelle, Trident, Viscount, Vanguard, Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8.

    Milan Walks and Guides

    Milan Walks and Guides

    by Edward Staiger

    One of the miracles of Milan is how physically accessible it can be. One can easily depend on its network of public transportation (the most extensive and reliable in Italy), but as this book proves – in Milan, one can walk. In walking, one can peruse, one can enter into the city as into a complete five-senses experience.

    This book is divided into four separate walking tours of the city, easily traversed on foot.

    The distance required by the mind just isn’t possible in a quick (or desperate) getaway weekend; Milan’s window-shopping alone – the best that Italy can offer – could take a week or a month. Its history took about two millennia. The sights and splendours of its many museums and churches can actually shock as they come to the tourist as so unexpected, literally, so unheard of.

    It’s finally time to discover Milan.
