Opis

€Ticket To Ride, Fly, Drive, or Sail A lush visual history of theGolden Age of travelThe metabolism of travel changed more in the last century than in theprevious half-millennium, a stunning transformation triggered by Americanwanderlust. In less than 100 years, the U.S. mass-produced the automobile,invented airplanes, freeways, motels, even sent men to the Moon. Travelgrew ever faster and easier. Above all, it was democratized —enabling millions to explore distant lands, or see their own more fully. At the start of the 20th century, only people with extensive disposableincome and time to spare could enjoy leisure travel. By the century's end,journeys took hours, not days, and mass travel — especially brief airflights — became the new normal. Along the way, ocean liners brokespeed records, aerodynamic trains roared down the tracks, stylishboat-plane clippers evolved into jumbo jets. Whether aboard high-speedlocomotives or ships, jets, or Greyhound buses — or when settingtheir own schedule on the open road — Americans demanded ever greatermobility and wider choice of destinations, thereby setting a new standardfor travelers around the world. A lush visual history of international wanderlust, this volume features400-plus print advertisements from the Jim Heimann Collection, thatillustrate the evolution of leisure travel — from domestic to global,exclusive to popular, exotic to standardized — and its crucial rolein American culture. With an introduction, decade-by-decade analysis, and an illustratedtimeline, this book highlights the cultural and technological developmentsthat transformed travel from a cushioned journey of the elite into aconvenient leisure pastime for the general public. 20th Century Traveltakes us on a grand tour of travel's golden age.
