Description
Richly illustrated with photographs and ephemera, an engaging exploration of how the development of the railways transformed every aspect of British life, from trade and communications to the landscape, health and recreation. From the popular BBC television series, historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologist Peter Ginn bring to life the everyday experiences of the men, women and children working on or living with the railways, while showing how the railways were a backdrop to changing social attitudes and culture across the 19th and 20th centuries.
