National Geographic : 1920 Jan
RAYMOND-WHITCOMB TOURS Europe Supremely Interesting in 1920 The most interesting period in the history of European travel will be the year 1920. The pent-up desire for Europe, suppressed for five years, may now be gratified, and, more than that, the Great Battlefields, the untouched, un tarnished monuments to the valor of American and Allied heroes, are still essentially unchanged, still saturated with tragedy, still littered with the relics of Titanic struggling. Raymond-Whitcomb Service Never in the history of Raymond-Whitcomb Tours has that premier organi zation been better equipped to render perfected travel-service to Americans of j discriminating tastes. This year the so-called "independent" travelers, even those experienced with past-and-gone conditions, will experience great diffi I culties. But the traveler with a Raymond-Whitcomb Tour will be free from them. Prepared and Tested The Raymond & Whitcomb Company is prepared and its plans have been tested. It has been prepared by visits of high officers of the Company them selves to Europe, visits beginning immediately after the Armistice and repeated steadily since then. It has been tested by the success of the first party, the most parties, the most successful parties, and the largest number of people taken to and through Europe since travel was opened. Never in the history of European travelers has there been greater opportunity for personal independence, independence of untoward conditions, of trouble, j of uncertainty, of unpleasant companionship, than will be experienced in the year 1920, Provided: a oThat they (perhaps you) obtain membership in one of the Raymond-Whit comb Tours to the Great Battlefields. A definitely limited number of people will be taken, so it is essential that plans be made early for Spring and Summer and one of our offices advised early of your intention, in time to book you for the right party.
