The Armstrong Whitworth Argosy

This book gives an insight into the systems and components of the Armstrong Whitworth Argosy, along with numerous stories of my time working on the aircraft. I will hopefully explain the servicing procedure while working on first line servicing of the aircraft. Some jobs were more pleasant than others as you will read about, not for those with a nervous disposition. Hopefully, the systems are explained satisfactorily. Some are more complicated than others, as you will no doubt appreciate when reading the text, but the explanation should make everything clear. The Argosy aircraft was part of the RAF Transport Command, doing exactly what it says, transporting people and equipment to various locations around the globe, although this was usually only restricted to Europe and the Middle East. I was posted to RAF Benson in January 1971, having returned from a tour of duty in Cyprus. I enjoyed working on the Argosy for my last fourteen months of service, I had a few continental trips, as well as a four-month detachment to Bahrain, another enjoyable experience. The stories in the book are true; they are my experiences of life working on the Argosy.

Excerpt from The Argosy, Vol. 47: January to June, 1889 IT was a May-day and the Wind was not in the east. The little wind there was blew softly and gently from the south, and down in the valley the weather was warm and genial. Some people might have found it too warm inside the smithy, at three O'clock in the afternoon, to be pleasant. Nevertheless, Reuben Foreman, as he stood at his anvil wielding mightily his heavy sledge with movement slow and rhythmical, was subject to several interrup tions before the hooter Of a neighbouring cloth mill announced that it was six O'clock and the day's work at an end. And as not everyone in Woodford was either so busy or so industrious as the blacksmith, several of his visitors lingered to gossip as long as he bore with them, in spite of the heat. But Reuben took such contingencies into consideration, and in ar ranging his programme Of work for the day, left a margin wide enough to cover all the horses he would be called upon to shoe, and the fools he would be in duty bound to converse with. For the horses had hoofs to be shod, and the fools had souls to be saved; and Reuben, in his own Opinion and in that of his neighbours, was clever in both these occupations, widely different as they were, though occasionally both were performed at the same moment.

Excerpt from The Argosy, Vol. 28: July to December, 1879 Mrs. Bourne, with tears in her eyes, begged her to give them a few days first, that she might recruit after her journey; and the few days were now rapidly becoming many. Mr. Bourne had begun to growl privately about that good thing of which it is possible to have too much but his wife always stopped his mouth with the piteous question: What was the poor dear to do - when, as she confessed, there was no roof under which she slept so well as theirs P she who hardly slept at all, as a rule.

The American Story of the Bookstores on Fourth Avenue from the 1890s to the 1960s New York City has eight million stories, and this one unfolds just south of Fourteenth Street in Manhattan, on the seven blocks of Fourth Avenue bracketed by Union Square and Astor Place. There, for nearly eight decades from the 1890s to the 1960s, thrived the New York Booksellers’ Row, or Book Row. This richly anecdotal memoir features historical photographs and the rags-to-riches tale of the Strand, which began its life as a book stall on Eighth Street and today houses 2.5 million volumes (or sixteen miles of books) in twelve miles of space. It’s a story cast with characters as legendary and colorful as the horse-betting, poker-playing, go-getter of a book dealer George D. Smith; the irascible Russian-born book hunter Peter Stammer; the visionary Theodore C. Schulte; Lou Cohen, founder of the still-surviving Argosy Book Store; and gentleman bookseller George Rubinowitz and his formidably shrewd wife, Jenny. Book Row remembers places that all lovers of books should never forget, like Biblo & Tamen, the shop that defied book-banning laws; the Green Book Shop, favored by John Dickson Carr; Ellenor Lowenstein’s world-renowned gastronomical Corner Book Shop (which was not on a corner); and the Abbey Bookshop, the last of the Fourth Avenue bookstores to close its doors. Rising rents, street crime, urban redevelopment, and television are many of the reasons for the demise of Book Row, but in this volume, based on interviews with dozens of the people who bought, sold, collected, and breathed in its rare, bibliodiferous air, it lives again.
