Abstract

Australians have notoriously and frequently travelled internationally for entertainment, in pursuit of knowledge and experience. This article examines a trip undertaken by two engineers for Ansett Airlines, based in Melbourne, to the United States in the mid-1950s. Using as its basis a photo album compiled by one of the men, this article examines the mid-20th century Australian experience of American modernism, concentrating on transport and tourism facilities both mundane and magnificent.
