London to Calcutta, 1938. Condition is Good. Sent with Australia Post Standard Service.




In 1938, Owen Wright and his cousin Ted

White spent three months driving Ted's old

Morris car from London to Calcutta - a trip

made just before the upheaval and devastation

of the Second World War.

From the brooding tension of a Germany

already under the influence of Nazism, through

the rough and sometimes inhospitable terrain

of Turkey, the Middle East and Iran, and finally

to the relative safety of an India still under

British rule, Owen and Ted recorded

impressions of diverse countries and cultures,

some of which were soon to change dramatically,

The logbook kept during their trip, as well as

Owens diary and letters home and Ted's superb

collection of evocative photographs, recreate

the atmosphere of this adventurous journey

EDITORIAL NOTE regarding the Maps

For ease of understanding we have chosen to use

the current political boundaries of the countries

through which Owen Wright and Ted White passed.
