High-Ho To London

Incidents and Interviews on a Leisurely Journey by Air from Australia to Britain

by Frank Clune

Angus and Robertson, 1949 [Second Edition], black and white photographic frontispiece, black and white photographic plates, illustrations, illustrated end-papers (maps), hardcover

Fair Condition, some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, some rubbing, soiling and tears to covers and spine, dust and foxing to fore-edges (see photographs)

"If you were in a hurry you could travel from Australia to Britain in a week - or less.  Airline schedules are constantly being speeded up, and a time will soon come when London will be only a couple of days' flying distance from Sydney for ordinary passengers and mails.  This whirr of speed is of tremendous value to people who have no time to spare; but I wasn't in that mood when I left Sydney, on New Year's Day, 1947, bound high-ho to London.  I wanted to explore the highways, sky-ways, and by-ways all along Britain's lengthy eastward line of communications, form the antipodes of the south to the antipodes of the north."
