    Biography

    Edward Pearce Hulme (1872-)a naturalized American living in Altadena, California, was 75 years old (1947) when he undertook a solo trip to Great Britain where he had been born and raised. He had not been in England since 1923. His diary covers the extended six month trip (March through August) during which Mr. Hulme traveled by rail to New York City and by ship on the Queen Elizabeth. He visited relatives, friends, and neighbors, spending much time in Birmingham with his sister and her family. He made sightseeing trips to London, Stratford on Avon, Derby and other cities, visited his old neighborhood at Beech Lanes, Quinton, and also spent time in Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man. Hulme comments on World War II bombing damage. He returned to America on the White Star SS Line, and on the transcontinental return trip stopped to sightsee in New York City, Montreal, Toronto, Niagara, Chicago, Salt Lake City and Sacramento.
