Oh, to have visited South America in 1924! It was an age when great, largely British-built railway networks fanned out from many cities. When Elkington Plate cutlery from Birmingham could be bought in Montevideo and Valparaiso. When briar pipes and Webb’s Indian Tonic were available in Buenos Aires and – just to prove that trade was in both directions – yerba maté tea was sold in London EC2.
Travellers were encouraged not to forget certain essentials, including cocoa from Fry & Sons, Remington typewriters with “one SHIFT only”, and explosives from Nobel Industries.
