Described by The Automobile magazine as a 'fascinating' and 'charming' publication, E. G. Cooper's Motor Tours in The New Forest and its Neighbourhood of 1912, included nine routes for motorists to follow in their exploration of the New Forest and the radiating highways that lay between Winchester and Weymouth, Salisbury and Stonehenge, as well as the Isle of Wight. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Cooper's original, this facsimile edition has been produced to illustrate the many changes that have occurred over the past one hundred years, and also to highlight some of those parts of this unique part of Britain that have surprisingly remained unchanged too. Including over seventy period photographs and advertisements that highlight both local attractions and the then-latest motoring innovations, here is a book that will be of interest to anyone with a fascination for the early days of leisure motoring.
