The History Detective Investigates: Victorian Transport Summary


The History Detective Investigates: Victorian Transport by Colin Stott

'The Victorian age was a time when life in Britain changed more dramatically than ever before. Among the most important changes were the great advances made in transportation.' With the help of history detective Sherlock Bones, this book shows how transport changed during the Victorian era. The reader will discover how innovations in technology brought about many different modes of transport such as steam ships, barges, trains, trams and 'horseless carriages' (cars). Various engineers and inventors are looked at, including Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Karl Benz. Readers are encouraged to compare transport in Victorian times with transport today, and stimulating questions and prompts will help them compile their own project on Victorian transport. It is beautifully and logically presented, with clear photos, colour artwork, a glossary and index.
