SOMEWHERE IN TIME

b1

Take a stroll in the clouds in the First Class luxury that was air travel in the 1960s with this BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) in-flight travel bag, complete with the original menus and holiday guide to Hong Kong.

Step into Wicker’s World, a world of glamorous stewardesses, Martini’s and duty free cigarettes, back to the nicotine stained golden age of Trans-Continental flying from London to Hong Kong, via Tehran.

Thankfully air travel and the flight paths to the Orient have changed a bit since 1968, but this provides a nostalgic snapshot and reminder of how we used to fly.
