Description
Information
'A Century in Photographs: Travel' is a remarkable pictorial record of the last century in terms of travel for pleasure and travel as a means to an end. Each year of the century is illustrated by a single memorable image from the photographic archives of both 'The Times' and the Hulton Getty Photo Library. A simple caption accompanies every picture, placing it in its historical context and highlighting its relevance to the time.

It demonstrates how travel has gone from being of minority interest to the moneyed-classes, to a majority activity for all - from a necessity to a leisure activity. It demonstrates the technological developments that have made it all possible, and the personalities who have played their part. The photographs reveal both the humour and the tragedies of the century's passion for travel.
