The Railway in Town and Country 1830-1914
Simmons, Jack      
ISBN: 0715386999
David & Charles Newton Abbot, Devon, UK 1986 First Edition  Hard Cover 400 Pages with Black/White Photos. Professor Jack Simmons was the most eminent railway historian of his time. His magnum opus was to have been a four volume of the railways in England and Wales between 1830 and 1914. It is a regret the work was never completed but Faber Finds are proud to reissue the two volumes that were published. The second volume considers the railway's impact on British towns and countryside. London and provincial cities like Bristol, Leeds and Birmingham are examined and special attention is given to certain types of towns: railway towns like Crewe and Swindon, and seaports and holiday resorts many of which were developed in conjunction with the railways. Also discussed are the effects the railways had on the supply of food and coal, holidays and sport, urban or suburban growth in and around the big cities   Very Good/Very Good
