“PRE ORDER – AIR TRAVEL TIME MACHINE | KODACHROME MEMORIES 1942-1960“
PRE ORDER (PRINTED BOOKS ARE EXPECTED TO SHIP IN APRIL-MAY 2024):
The author has made it one of his life missions to assemble a growing collection of unique and fascinating Kodachrome images created in the mid of the last century, that were spontaneous photographic captures of every day air travels, at a time when the vast majority of the population were still travelling this great world by ocean liner.
The 288 all colour pages that are presented in this lavishly presented hard cover volume will offer a look back to an era where people travelled in style to the four corners of the globe by modes of air transport that were very much still in their infancy. Pay close attention to the small details that lurk in the backgrounds of the pictures of the pages that follow, and you will revel in amazement of how good things were on this planet so many decades ago.
Between the close of World War II and 1960, air travel went from the piston banger era to the jet age. This was a short period of barely 15 years. Between 1960, and the publication date of this book 2024, some 64 years have passed. Although commercial aircraft have become somewhat larger, there have been no real advancements in air travel technology that can compare to those after the post World War II era covered in this volume.
Dear reader, it is hoped that you will sincerely enjoy this fascinating time machine look back to the early days of postwar air travel, as much as the author enjoyed compiling this fascinating archive over the past 30 years. Thank you for your support in purchasing this book. It is the author’s sincerest wish that you may always travel in comfort and safety, and enjoy the decency and respect of your fellow passengers.
