A Pictorial history of brewery vehicles from the earliest horse-drawn drays through to traction engines and steam wagons and ending with the futuristic designs for the 2st century. But the main coverage is British trucks during the 1950's and 60's.
Much of Robert Coates' life has been devoted to improving the efficiency of road transport, several years of it spent in the brewery industry. In this highly evocative book, the product of more than a decade spent on meticulous research and the compilation of a magnificent collection of period photographs, he offers a tribute to the constant ingenuity of the people who strive to transport beer and other liquids ever more safely, speedily and cost-effectively. Pulling Pints is also a worthy pictorial record of the development of one of the most interesting and demanding forms of road transport.
