The World Around 1900

Jürgen Sorges

From Windsor Castle to the Great Wall of China, and from Japanese mussel gatherers to market traders in Algeria, this volume contains over 400 hand-tinted photographs in a survey of the world as it was in 1900. Jürgen Sorges’ introduction describes the tremendous pace of progress over the late 19th century and, with hindsight, sees in these wonderful images of wide open spaces, streets without cars, unspoilt mountainsides and low-rise cities a world ‘dancing on the edge of the abyss’.
