1913: The World before the Great War

Charles Emmerson

While 1913 is often seen as the prelude to an apocalypse, that was not how it felt at the time. Presented largely from the perspective of contemporary travellers and writers, the world presented in this account was wealthier and better connected than ever before. Encompassing 28 cities, it highlights technological progress across the globe, the scale of optimism for the future, and how oblivious people were to the catastrophe that lay ahead.
