Joseph Fry


The Fry diaries: France and Belgium in the early 1800s. 

Prices, postillions, rapacious landladies… The travel diaries in A Tale of Two Journeys, published here for the first time, give a lively insight into the perils and pleasures of early nineteenth century tourism. The first of the journeys was made in 1814 by Joseph Fry, husband of the famous Quaker prison reformer, Elizabeth Fry. An enthusiastic traveller, he arrives in Paris after touring Belgium, and eagerly prepares to see the sights.
