Kitchener to Westcliff in 7 days
Over the years, H.I. has accumulated a huge quantity of vintage handbags, and yesterday she rummaged through them and found this little note tucked away inside a 1930s one.
Kitchener, Ontario to Westcliff (on Sea), England - by sea of course, in the Golden Age of travel.
From right in the middle of the Great Lakes, one of which is big enough to swallow England whole, to the mouth of the river Thames - it could all have been done by boat, aside from the 570 miles across Ontario, and about 30 miles across Kent.
It could have been done by sea-plane, but only the seriously rich could afford that.
It's a shame there is no name attached to the note.
