An English Holiday with Car and Camera

    Article metrics


    IT was scarcely necessary for Mr. Hissey to tell us, as he does in his preface, that he travels purely for pleasure and “in search of the picturesque.” Those readers who know the author's many pleasant, gossipy books about English by-ways have long been aware, from the optimistic way in which rural England is described, that Mr. Hissey loves exploring his native land. This time the journey taken by the author and his wife was confined to motoring in the country south of a line joining the Wash to the Bristol Channel. The account of the wanderings, with its many glimpses of the home-life of the country people, and the excellent illustrations, combine to make a very interesting volume.
