Lowell Thomas, famous for his travels, most notable traveled to Arabia, Burma, India, Egypt, and Palestine during WW1. He documented his travels through photos, some of which portray the native people, culture, architect, and landscape. WW1 is a period known for its destruction on areas and people, so the photos taken, most of which lack any sign of war, provide a unique perspective into other countries.
The pictures of each location were taken from the many photos offered by the Marist archives. Becuase of the many photos available, the ones seen in this project are handpicked to offer a general idea one would gain from viewing all of the photos.
