Travelling 1920s style

I’ve just updated the Poppy Denby website with information on, and fabulous original photos of,the various trains, boats and automobiles Poppy and her friends use in London, Paris and New York. For readers who have already read the books, you can now see if your imagination matches up to reality. For those who haven’t, don’t worry, there are no plot spoilers as to whodunnit. Although book 3 is not quite out yet, I have included information on that too as a little taster. http://www.poppydenby.com/transport/
