Description

First published for the centenary of the Great Western Railway in 1935, 'Railway Ribaldry' is an affectionate and humorous look at life on board the company's famous trains, incorporating some of William Heath Robinson's own trademark madcap contraptions. Featuring almost 100 cartoons – including amusing takes on the varied duties of railway police, the first 'ladies only' carriage and countless 'ingenious plans' and inventions – it is the perfect gift for any railway enthusiast.

À propos de l'auteur

The author presents to you a segment of approximately 60 years in the life of an ordinary man who has led what some would say has been an extraordinary life. His exploits from age 15 when he left home and began life as a jackaroo and then overseer with Australian Agricultural Company on cattle stations in New South Wales, far Western Queensland and the Barkley Tableland of the Northern Territory. The highs and triumphs, in both sickness and health. His time as a manager on properties in NSW and his return to a different life in the city and his struggles as a businessman in the competitive world of manufacturing, finance and multinational companies.
