Description

These advertisements inevitably evoke a longing for the past. As we trundle our luggage through airports, the idea of a servant seems most appealing. While the grandeur of train stations like Dunedin's meant that accommodation nearby was the most respectable. Travelling now had high and low seasons, but travel in this style was still limited to a well-heeled clientele.
