Traveling in the 1920s

I thought I share this link to a silent film created in the 1920s by a tourist traveling to Palestine, Egypt, and finishing their trip in India. It is not done by a big budget film company, so it gives more of the favor of what it really was like.

Edna never traveled to these locations, but she did love traveling by ship.

In this film there is a great scene of passengers abroad the ship heading to India. I have still photos of Edna (and Charlie) abroad ship too, and it reminds me of some of the same things that happen on their trip(s).

So grab a hot cup of tea, and take this 19 minute journey back to the 1920s. LINK
