It'snot just toys for boys - I have watched all the Clarkson dvds - my OH gets them for Christmas from his son (one year I'll kill the little so-an-so). Let's hope he never finds your source of info, I'll be there for weeks.

I was browsing through GR’s online copy of the London Gazette of 1851 and my attention was drawn to several columns devoted to the Great Exhibition. One article was a review of the latest carriages on display and it seemed to me just like the 19th century equivalent of a ‘Top Gear’ review by a Victorian Jeremy Clarkson, as if he was drooling over the latest Aston Martins and Ferraris at the Motor Show.
