A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Trains, planes, boats and cars. What did Australians do before the invention of modern transport? Aborigines travelled by foot and used canoes made from large sheets of bark stripped from eucalyptus trees, but with European settlement new ideas and technologies emerged for crossing our vast and challenging country. Transport brings together the stories of heroic, groundbreaking and everyday enterprises in transport - in shipping, roads, rail and aviation - across Australia. This is the fascinating story of how transport in Australia has developed, and how it has impacted our lives. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9781742232133

Synopsis :

From the saddle horse to the motorcar, the cheap tram to the paddle steamer, and the express train to the modern jet aircraft, this account chronicles the fascinating history of transportation in Australia. Demonstrating how European settlements and technologies impacted the means of travel—Aborigines previously journeyed by foot or in canoes made from eucalyptus trees—this lavishly illustrated record interweaves facts and anecdotes to portray the development of transport Down Under.
