There are so many different ways to explore history that we can’t help but wonder whether in the future there is going to be a museum devoted to the history of history. Though it may not seem so in education at an early level and in some of the mainstream newspapers, History has long moved on as a discipline from the names and dates fixation that it used to have. No longer are the most important things in history related to the names and deeds of important persons – kings, noblemen, warriors and the like, with particular focus given to those who appeal to our modern day sensibilities and marginalisation of those who don’t. These things do still matter, but a much more complex, nuanced view of history has arisen, and a substantial part of that is the history of culture and society – essentially looking at the lives of everyday folk from the past.
Can there be a better way to study the lives of the average person than to look at the vehicles that shaped their lives. Transport is a huge part of everyone’s life, even if you don’t drive yourself it shapes what commodities are available, where it is possible to go and more, affecting nearly every aspect of living from the food you eat to the clothes you wear. Enjoy some excellent cultural history with a copy of Vintage Roadscene. NB
