From the Orient Expess to Ocean Liners

From the Orient Expess to Ocean Liners

A unique cultural history of travel in the 19th and 20th centuries.

With pictures that awaken both nostalgic feelings and wanderlust

Historical (celebrity) photography to marvel at and revel in

Revised new edition in a handy format

To the coast or to the mountains, to a neighbouring country or to another continent? In earlier times, there was no such choice - practically everything was far away and out of reach. That only changed with the invention of the railway. Fishing villages became sophisticated seaside resorts, remote mountain nests became destinations for hiking and skiing enthusiasts, inns advanced to grand hotels. This volume takes you back to exciting times - when travelling meant discovering the world in a stylish and sometimes adventurous way. Take the Orient Express to the Orient, cross the Atlantic on ocean liners, follow Route 66 across the USA or break the sound barrier on the Concorde. Bon Voyage!
