Since the 18th century, people from Europe, Africa, India and China have made Mauritius their home. The result is a charming mix of cultural and religious traditions, against the backdrop of a tropical paradise. The dramatic landscapes of Mauritius feature high mountain peaks, white beaches and untouched rainforest, as well as rich fauna and flora. This is a welcoming country, where the people live in harmony with their natural surroundings. This selection of postcards from Andre de Kervern's collection is a timeless record of Mauritius. Each chapter focuses on a different region including the north, south, centre and the capital Port Louis, as well as on the island's people. Classic scenes of sugar cane plantations, railways, parades, horse races and verdant landscapes were all widely circulated fragments of cinema-verite. Complete with detailed captions and essays by Yvan Martial, these postcards offer glimpses of life in Mauritius from the 19th and 20th centuries."
