I chose this clock as a piece in the collection because it represents the fact that we don't have unlimited time to do things.
Phileas Fogg lives in 1872 London. His address is No. 7 Saville Row, Burlington Gardens
I chose this flag because Mr. Fogg is a pround englishmen and he bases a lot of his actions off of his honor as an englishmen.
Phileas Fogg's Journal Entry
I chose this picture to show the wealth of Fogg. This carriage is nicely decorated and looks like the owner is well-off.
Today we take modern transportation for granted. In Fogg's time, going around the world in any amount of time was very difficult.
I chose this picture for the collection because Phileas Fogg takes advantage of "modern" innovations such as the steambooat in his voyage.
I chose this piece of artwork because it shows the lengths Fogg is willing to go to to achieve his goals. He buys an elephants for 2,000 pounds (which is about 250,000 U.S. dollars today) because it is the most efficient way for him to cross India.
precision, methodicalness, compassion
I chose this picture for the collection because Mr. Fogg often uses train travel to cross countries or other land masses.
calm, cool, collected, but with a hidden soft side
I chose this picture because Phileas Fogg misses a larger steamboat so must take a small sailboat to reach the destination.
I chose to include this ticket in the collection because Mr. Fogg has to buy his tickets everywhere he goes. He cannot go online and buy all of his tickets, he has to do it by hand all over the world.
