it was amazing
bookshelves: travel

What an utterly charming read! Canning was commissioned by the Daily Mail to write a series of travel articles covering all corners of England, during the 1930's. And what a treat they are - wryly humorous, wonderfully poetic, and immensely poignant, all at once. The only quibble I have is at the lack of a map, but time spent pouring over the intricate map of England in the National Geographic Atlas of the World is never time poorly spent.
