F.J. Camm


The Practical Man, 1895-1959

An Outline of his Life and Works

Gordon G. Cullingham

The late Gordon Cullingham, Honorary Archivist of the Royal Borough of Windsor, U.K. researched at length the interests, writings and skills of a remarkable Windsorian, F. J. Camm.

Born at the end of the Victorian era, F.J. grew up in the early days of motoring, aviation and electronics and contributed, through his extensive writings in the 'Practical ...' series of magazines and his own books, to the public's understanding of these new sciences. A skilled modeller, this book contains photographs and drawings of F.J.'s aeroplanes, steam and petrol engines and a wealth of other examples of his amazing versatility and accomplishment.
