The Summer Car of the River: Motor-launching on the Thames Featured Print

The Summer Car of the River: Motor-launching on the Thames

An illustration by C.E. Turner depicting the fashion for motor-boats or motor-launches during the 1920s among the upper classes, enabling peaceful travel away from the jumbled traffic of weekend roads'. The caption reads: There has been much talk of late of the neglect of the river. That ther is truth in the jeremiads of the boatmen cannot be denied; and needless to say, the motor-car has come in for the chief blame. It is hardly fair, however, to put everything down to this; for it is to be feared that the weather has also played a malignant part on occasion! Given sunny days, indeed, the waters of the Thames, more particularly, retain all their attractions, and it may be added that the motor-launch is gaining in popularity every year; is becoming, in fact, the car of the river. And to the motor launch must now be added the outboard motor-boat; that is to say, the comparatively small craft with detatchable motor and propellor. It may be prophesying rather far ahead, but it seems likely that, with the week-end roads a jumble of traffic, the rivers will be used more and more as a summer highway

Flying for the Summer Week-end by C.E. Turner Featured Print

Flying for the Summer Week-end by C.E. Turner

Illustration from 1928 by C.E. Turner reflecting the growing rise of civilian flying in the 1920s. The caption reads,'...only last month there was a house-party at which the ten guests (all owners of planes) arrived from London and Canterbury in five Moths and a Widgeon. The landings were made in the host's grounds, and the little flying-machines were housed in the ordinary car garages. On the Sunday, the host adn hostess, accompanying their guests, the whole party flew from Cirencester to Lambourne Down, in Berkshire, for a picnic. Our drawing does not illustrate a particular event, at which Mr and Mrs. Fitzgerald, or Marsden Manor, Cirencester, were the hosts but it is typical
