We can’t deny it (nor do we want to!): we have an inspiring collection of travel-related items. The Chung Collection’s Canadian Pacific Railway Company materials kindle the romance of adventuring the continent by train or the globe by cruise ship, and many travelogues, maps, photographs, and other ephemera are are nestled in our other collections.
There’s one particular item that’s causing some serious wanderlust right now: the [World Travel Photo Album]. This album captures a Canadian family’s extensive journeying at home and abroad between 1900 and 1950. The 778 photographs include snapshots of iconic travel destinations frozen in time.
The clothes! The cars! The lack of selfies!
Feeling trapped by the endless winter but don’t have the time or money to make your own grand voyage? Thanks to our digital collections you can be a time-traveling globetrotter from the comforts of your own home. Enjoy.
