Thomas Cook celebrates 170 years

Saturday, 27 August 2011

with this great infographic:

A History of British Holidaymaking in Numbers brought to you by Thomas Cook holidays

Rather nicely, they also provided the html code for the infographic to allow other people to embed the image on their website which is what I've done here.  I found it via this site which notes that the facts and information came from their in-house archivist.

That's interesting to see where the name Thomas Cook came from. I went on a Thomas Cook cruise last year and it was just fantastic!
