Roadways

Synopsis
Traces the histroy of transport with particular emphasis on the heavy growth of road traffic from 1918 until the late 1930s. The GPO, itself a major user, acknowledged its responsibilites and expressed its concern - a surprising ‘modern’ attitude to porblems that still affect us today, from fierce competition to environmental issues.
