The third Wales on Wheels was blessed with a fine day as before. Photographs will apper on the Events page soon, and a report will appear in the next Journal.
The Roads & Road Transport History Association, founded in 1992, promotes, encourages and co-ordinates the study of the history of roads, road passenger transport and the carriage of goods. In 2005, the Association became a Company Limited by Guarantee.
We cover the whole range of transport history from the earliest times to the current age … packhorses, carters, street furniture, economics, social trends, the effects of gender upon transport, personalities in road transport, avenues of research, regulation by governments or local authorities, manufacturers and bodybuilders, cycling, sources of transport history, the preservation of artefacts, photographic material, the exploration of archives, the need to promote transport and logistics as a career, a general, boundless interest in transport, and even quite simple nostalgia.
This breadth of interests contributes to valuable cross-fertilisation. We aim to encourage those interested in a particular aspect of transport, to understand their chosen subject in the context of developments in other areas and at other periods.
