We Discover the Old Dominion -- 1916

Book by Louise Closser Hale, illustrated by her husband Walter Hale. Twenty-eight pencil drawings and a map of their route. Published by Dodd, Mead in 1916. Fun to read, but surprises you every few pages with racist comments of the kind that were very common in 1916 but now quite unacceptable. Click one of the images below to see a larger version, as usual.
