There are plenty of ways to delve into the history of a city like London, but it’s not often done through the world of the motor car. But that’s exactly what Chris Randall has done, exploring the links between the capital and its automotive past.

That makes this book a somewhat unique approach to the subject, and readers will discover a fascinating history that involves some of the most famous names in motoring. Enthusiasts will certainly recognise the likes of Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls-Royce but amongst those are names that might be less familiar today.

The buildings that you’ll find within this book all exist today, which means you can see the motoring history for yourself. Some are now famous restaurants, others are offices and a few are private homes, but what they all have in common is the automobile and for those that love all things four-wheeled there are some real treasures to be found.

Illustrated with photographs that show you what those places look like today, along with how some of them appeared in their motoring heyday, this is a very different look at the history of the famous city. It’s played a part in the very earliest days of the automobile’s story, and that’s something this books sets out to celebrate.
