Magnus Volk’s Bizarre Machine
Jago Hazzard’s Youtube channel is an absolute delight. Wonderful narration, fascinating history (even for a non-history person like me), the odd pun too. Even though he denies the puns, he’s managed to find an absolutely bizarre machine created by Magnus Volk. A part-tram, part-boat, part-something indescribable which operated along the seafront of Brighton. Doubtless anything like this would be made today – the health and safety aspects would be an absolute nightmare to begin with. But boy, this would have been an experience and a half to ride what looked like a moving pier. Well worth a watch. Also, check out the rest of his channel for the ‘Tales from the Tube’ which has been a long-running series of videos about the Underground.
