Exploring Britain by Car

Exploring Britain by Car


McCulloch, Mercy E. Toronto: The Ryerson Press, 1946. Softcover. 8vo. [viii] 191pp. Aged pages. Some stains and rubbing on covers. Some foxing on pages. Inscribed by author.

An adorable and extremely sweet travelogue which, starting in Quebec in 1920, sails on to Britain and hops a train to France before returning to Canada via steamer. Throughout, McCulloch maintains that women and men should have equal access to education and that's probably going to help right the world.

Fun fact: In 1908, McCulloch won a contest in the English launch of Colliers Weekly to rewrite the Canadian national anthem.

"O Canada! in praise of thee we sing;

From echoing hills our anthems proudly ring.

With fertile plains and mountains grand

With lakes and rivers clear,

Eternal beauty, thou dost stand

Throughout the changing year.

Lord God of Hosts! We now implore

Bless our dear land this day and evermore,

Bless our dear land this day and evermore."

Not bad! And gender neutral!
