"... the main theme of her new book is her journey to London by air, to attend the Sixth International Congress of Radiology, and Mary Kent Hughes makes the most of her opportunity to gather impressions of eleven European countries, from Italy to as far north as Sweden. These she conveys to us in her own inimitable word pictures.
The change in our conception of time and space which air travel has brought is exemplified by the fact that she could pass in a few days from a home in Victoria, Australia, to the Catacombs of early Rome."
