RSGS Inspiring People - Jenny Balfour-Paul - GLASGOW EVENING
Wed 14 December 2016, 19:30 – 21:00 GMT
Jenny Balfour-Paul, traveller and authority on indigo, traces the footsteps of Thomas Machell, a Victorian adventurer and fellow indigo lover. Through India, Arabia and the South Pacific, she combines her own journals and sketches with those of Machell's; offering a unique insight into the social history of British colonialism, while telling the story of a forgotten, progressive pioneer.
