Continuing on the theme of vintage travel guides, today's post offers two more contrasts: Britain and Greece.
Seaside resorts in Britain, British Travel and Holidays Association (1955). Printed 10 years after
the end of World War II, the cover features very clever and colorful
artwork. Inside is a series of summaries on British seaside towns
from Lands End to the Orkney Islands and everything in between with black
and white photos of towns landmarks and vacationers. Curiously, there's a stamp on
the back, "Your vacation in France begins in New York when you
travel France afloat go buy French line." Bought used at the State Department
