    Illustrated with contemporary photographs, posters and advertisements, this book tells the story of civil aviation from 1919 and the world's first named air service - the 'Silver Wing' service between London and Paris (16 passengers and a lavatory) - to 1946 and the choice of Heath Row as the main London Airport, the Civil Aviation Act and the creation of nationally owned airlines. It also covers some almost forgotten aspects of air travel, including flying boats and aircraft spotting.
