Great Britons Britain in Pictures by Ltd. Press Association

Britain is a nation of great men and women who are admired for their courage in the face of adversity, their outstanding achievements and their unstinting noble qualities. Such popular heroes come from all walks of life and count among their ranks explorers, inventors, soldiers, sailors, airmen, scientists, musicians, sportsmen and women, actors, artists, politicians - and the ordinary folk and unsung heroes who are revered by others because of a selfless act or personal sacrifice. With a wry nod to British eccentricity, also celebrated here are the larger-than-life characters that have won the hearts of the public, including plucky racehorses, loyal canines and loveable celebrities from the small screen. This book is a visual record of some of the foremost personalities in Britain to be lauded with the title 'Great', told in almost 300 images from the vast archives of the Press Association, whose photographers have been on hand over the last century to capture these personalities for posterity.
