    Great book, awesome photo collection. Goes back to the beginning, long before I was born so this is like a history book for me. Fantastic text with every photo. Can't go wrong with this one!

    I purchased this book for my Father for Christmas last year and he absolutely loved it. What I didn't know was the amount of stories it would produce from my father and the amazing discussions it would produce. It really brought back a lot of memories for my father. Highly recommend.
