Made on the Isle of Wight: From Torpedo Boat to Spacecraft: From Torpedo Boats to Spacecraft

Made on the Isle of Wight is a photographic celebration of the tiny island’s enormous contribution to the aviation, automotive, and marine sectors, from the first hovercraft to world-record-breaking boats and even the only all-British rocket and satellite into orbit. Local author David L. Williams covers the many products of the island’s industry, as well as designers and engineers, and the workers who built these unique creations, with a focus on creativity, innovation, and record-breaking.
