    Lost Airline Colours of Europe Timelines

    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.

    Middlesbrough 1920-2020: A Century of Change

    by Araf Chohan

    Look back at a century in the life of Middlesbrough in this photographic history book from one of the town’s most respected authors and historians.

    Beginning in the period after the Great War, chart the changes in the town from the 1920s through the Second World War and the subsequent period of rebuilding.

    Through the decades, see how the town evolved as the years passed. The much-loved Victorian architecture is gradually lost, and the repeated regeneration of the St Hilda’s area changes the face of the original township. In the town centre, new shopping centres, businesses and open spaces develop where rows of terraced houses once stood.

    Much of this book charts living memory for those who recall how the town used to be. Witness the loss of much-loved landmarks and the construction of new buildings that have become a part of the landscape.

    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.
