Michigan State University Press, Dec 1, 2003 - Transportation - 186 pages
In this volume, museum curators and other historians examine transportation artifacts and systems in selected museum collections in Western Europe and the United States. Tackling Transportation demonstrates the manifold ways in which automobiles, aircraft, and railways can be employed in the study of transportation history. In addition, there is a section devoted to the exhibitions at which transportation artifacts are displayed and the museums in which many of them are preserved.
