Description:

This nineteenth book in the Wheels series contains the usual eclectic mix of nostalgic Scottish transport scenes supported, as always, by Robert Grieves well researched and fact filled captions. He has used the Perthshire boundary as it was prior to the government re-organisation of 1975 for the book, which loses some areas such as Callander and Crianlarich but gains others, such as Kinross. Unforgettable images include a Rolls-Royce Silver Phantom negotiating a severe hairpin bend in rural Perthshire in 1909, the members of the Scottish Automobile Club entering Pitlochry while competing in the reliability trials of Friday 15th June 1905 and a seemingly endless row of “Charabancs & Motor Cars for Hire” belonging to the Trossachs Hotel Company lined up outside Callander Railway Station in 1926.
