The exhibit “Nellie Gail Moulton’s World Travel Photography” opens on October 26th at Moulton Museum in Nellie’s Gallery. Our museum is honored to recognize Nellie Gail Moulton and her international perspectives acclimated by decades of world travel. Nellie visited six continents and more than thirty countries throughout her ninety-three years of life.
Nellie shared in her memoir, “I have touched just briefly on the history of my travels, leaving out a great deal – what I have forgotten is all to be seen in vivid and minute portrayal in my extensive file of slide films. My next trip is yet to be.” This exhibit opens as part of our series for National Arts & Humanities Month for October.
It is through the lens that the viewer is taken on a journey to the past to see what Nellie saw and experienced. It is an itinerary that cannot be duplicated in the present day.
Nellie Gail Moulton’s World Travel Photography is an exhibit which begins with a voyage on December 1st, 1908, as Lewis and Nellie Gail Moulton set sail on the “S.S. Mongolia” for their honeymoon to Hawaiʻi.
Over her ninety-three years, Nellie visited four continents via steamship. Through photographs and stories from her memoir and “flight journal,” we get to join her as she visits an emperor, sails with an exiled president, and meets the beautiful people of such countries as Denmark, Norway,England, Scotland, Egypt, Brazil, Ceylon (modern-day SriLanka), Turkey, Italy, France, Germany, and South Africa.
