About the Author

Very interesting book for the fans of Meccano, Hornby trains and Dinky Toys although there is a major error, the farm tractor on the cover is not a Meccano product.
If you are interested in personal biographies of those who invent and tinker or are a fan of the products that came from this company, you'll find it interesting enough to ignore the flaws.
