The Secret Aviation Drawings and Illustrations of World War IIBook - 2005
A pictorial tour of 22 of Toronto's most attractive coach houses -- coveted relics from the age of horses that have been lovingly preserved, restored and renovated.
An affectionate tribute to some of Toronto's most beautiful hidden homes.
Some of the most charming homes in the best neighborhoods of today's modern cities once housed horse teams and carriages. Then ripe with the smells of leather, horse and hay, they are now among the most coveted urban dwellings. This book is a pictorial tour of 22 of Toronto's most attractive coach house homes, some lovingly preserved, others carefully restored, and most extensively renovated. Despite their dramatic interior-design differences, all share a distinctive historic allure.
As the twentieth century progressed, the magnificent coach houses were demolished or fell into disrepair. Because of their age and rarity, the surviving coach houses are highly prized and tenaciously protected by their owners and by many city historical boards across North America. This beautiful collection of essays and images pays homage to these secret homes.
This compilation of drawings from World War II features manuals, posters, and diagrams of aircraft, many of them previously unpublished. Background on the drawings and air combat training is included, but the majority of the book is comprised of full and two-page color illustrations of drawings of aircraft from Great Britain, Germany, the US, and the Soviet Union, many by Peter Endsleigh Castle, who wrote the foreword. Nijboer is the author of other books on World War II aircraft. Distributed by Firefly Books. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
