Veteran cars are those made not later than 1918 and were thus the earliest motor cars to appear on the roads of Britain. The first models basically comprised the frame and bodywork of a horse-drawn carriage fitted with a petrol engine, but during the period up to the First World War they became much more comfortable and efficient vehicles. This book describes how the motor car developed from its unpromising origins in the 1880s and 1890s, when motoring was mainly a hobby for wealthy eccentrics, until it came to be seen as a serious means of transport. About the authorMichael Ware is the retired Director of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. In 1959 he formed his own photographic business specialising in motor-racing photography. The veteran and Edwardian periods of motoring are his favourites and he greatly enjoys driving cars of this era. Another title for Shire by this author: Canals and Waterways
