Transport yourself back to the 1950s and join intrepid tourist Edith Joyes on her post-war travels around Western Europe. Visit a Mulberry harbour, the Bayeux tapestry and the oldest clock in the world! See for yourself, through the eyes of an ordinary woman, what it was like to travel, the family Ford Popular packed to the gunnels, across Europe, shortly after World War II, on roads barely cleared of rubble.

A fascinating array of travel journal extracts and postcards spanning 1951-1961, offering a vivid glimpse into our recent past, with an introduction by editor Karen Jane Cannon.
