Episode of Series “The Commonwealth of Nations”.
The Commonwealth of nations, like a world within a world, embraces a vast variety of peoples, cultures, languages, religions, and customs. This album contains self-portraits of the nine self-governing members; the united kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Unions of South Africa, India, Pakistan, Ceylon and Ghana. Each country is described for us, in terms if its national and geographical characteristics by a native citizen.
