Australian artist Hilda Rix Nicholas's Moroccan pictures are justly acclaimed as her finest, but they are not the only legacy of the time she spent in Tangiers in 1912 and 1914. Together with her sister Elsie, Hilda sent numerous postcards and lengthy letters to friends and family. Published here for the first time, these letters from Tangiers present a rich evocation of the real experience of travel in North Africa before World War I, and provide fascinating insight into the adventurous young women who w rote them. Adorned with sketches and drawings, the vivid descriptions of people, places and buildings, bring to life the experiences of Hilda Rix Nicholas as she came to understand a place and a culture very different from those she had previously known. Tertiary/Undergraduate. General.
