Graham Edge worked in the flour-milling industry for twenty years with experience in Rank Hovis McDougall and Spillers. He is also acknowledged as one of Britain's pre-eminent writers on historical transport matters. His book presents a lavish pictorial record of flour millers' transport operations from the days of horses and carts to the beginning of the 21st century. It records the pioneering breakthroughs in bulk deliveries which were to the benefit of millers, drivers and customers. The author also provides an important historical review of the flour-milling industry and recalls millers no longer in existence through photographs of their vehicles. Many brands and beautifully designed liveries are in evidence on a wide range of vehicles from a 1911 Leyland W-type to two 21st century DAF 65CFs.
