Around the World
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
Handsomely bound and illustrated with a wealth of vintage photographs, postcards and other memorabilia, this book transports the reader back to the dawn of world travel. From Cairo to Burma, and Paris to Honolulu, it follows in the footsteps of the first middle-class tourists to board ocean liners and document their journeys with the newly invented Box Brownie camera. The result is the evocation of an era when experiences were savoured slowly, and travel was an art in itself.
