• The first book in Veloce's new "Those were the days ...?" series, which takes a nostalgic look at times past
• Packed with wonderfully evocative photos of Police cars from the earliest days until the end of the 1970s
• A concise text tells the story behind the pictures
A nostalgic and heavily illustrated look at the cars used by the British Police from the very earliest days until the end of the 1970s. Throughout this book it’s the cars which are the stars, from Edwardian Humber to comparatively modern Rovers and Granadas of the seventies.
Using pictures sourced from policemen and police forces all over the country, this book illustrates the way in which policing gradually became more and more motorised over the years, and illustrates the many and extremely varied vehicles - mainly British, but not always so - which were used from earliest days through to the Seventies.
