      The Business of Travel - A History of Thomas Cook & Son

      Before they went bankrupt in 2019, Thomas Cook & Son had been in business since 1841. Starting with one man arranging a day-trip by train for Temperance campaigners, by the year of its fiftieth Jubilee, the company had revolutionised international tourism, opened an office on Broadway, invented Telecommuting (with real Telegraphs), started their own international bank, gained the monopoly for travel on the River Nile, provided logistical support to the British Empire in their fight against Muslim counter-revolutionaries, made Cockneys a common sight in Paris, dramatically improved conditions for Muslims undertaking their pilgrimage to Mecca, and maybe they even gave a well-known French writer the inspiration to write about a man travelling around the world in eighty days. (Mr Thomas Cook took 222 days when he performed the feat).

      This audio book is an unabridged read of "The Business of Travel", published in 1891 to celebrate the 50th Jubilee of this remarkable partnership.
