The author's aunt, Dorothy Lewis travelled widely in Burma. Over 140 images give fascinating glimpses of people and places. Daily life was going on in the markets and pagodas and schools and villages while great changes were taking place in the country. During the turbulent 1930's the British dealt harshly with rebellions and many Burmese were killed, but at the same time there were smiling schoolchildren in colonial schools. Some people in villages seem puzzled and uneasy and possibly hostile to an Englishwoman with a camera. There is a gap during WW2 then more images up to 1966 when all foreigners and missionaries had to leave the country, now under the control of the military government.
