Silver Places Book

( 0 Reviews )

Vintage and modern-day photographs and advertisements add depth to  Silver Palaces: America's Streamlined Trailers, a must-have book for  this fall. It is historically significant for those who suffer from  wanderlust, some fulfilled by owning and traveling with a "silver  palace," or perhaps owning an older model that's been rebuilt and  refurbished.
With a simple, historical beginning, the  streamlined trailer got its start. There were challenges in making  mobile spaces for living-could anyone make a self-contained streamlined  trailer complete with full hookups? After World War II, housecars and  motorhomes were seen everywhere-a result of aluminum becoming available  for trailers. Once these silver palaces were on the road, RVs and travel  associations became popular . . . and well, the end of the highway was  never in sight.
Doug Keister has photographed fourteen  award-winning, critically acclaimed books. His credits with Gibbs Smith,  Publisher, include Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery  Symbolism and Iconography and Classic Cottages: Simple, Romantic Homes  as well as Fernando's Gift (El Regalo de Fernando), a Sierra Club Book  for Children. Doug lives in Chico, California.
