Photographer's Note

The luxury and glamour of Orient-Express can be enjoyed aboard the legendary Venice Simplon-Orient-Express throughout Europe. With sleeping carriages and restaurant cars in place, Nagelmackers was finally able to fulfil his dream and on 4th October 1883 the first Orient-Express train service was inaugurated. The initial route ran from Paris to Giurgiu (on the Danube in Romania), via Strasbourg, Vienna, Budapest and Bucharest. By the turn of the century, the great age of rail travel was in full swing. The Simplon Tunnel - at 12ス miles, the world's longest - was built in 1906, cutting the trip from Paris to Venice significantly, and by 1921 the Orient-Express was running an extended Simplon-Orient-Express route to Istanbul
