This chapter discusses some observations on the continuing relevance of 19th century representations and assumptions on present day tourism. After the Great War, European nations established official means to solicit and organize tourist traffic and organized themselves to array part of their economies and their cultural self-representations according to the presumed or inferred interests of foreign visitors. Tourism became a studied discipline to the extent that it was recognized as an important factor in many of the balances of payments in international trade and the livelihood of whole towns and districts in many countries.
