Victorian gap year album captures scottish farmhands exotic world tour looking for work..<br />
<br />
A stunning photo album collated by a Scottish farmhand documenting his world tour has been unearthed after 130 years.<br />
<br />
The agricultural worker arrived in Tasmania in November 1886 but was only there for a few days before he carried on to New Zealand where he spent several months working on the land.<br />
<br />
The following April, he left New Zealand and headed to the United States, briefly stopping off in Honolulu, Hawaii.<br />
<br />
His first stop in the United States was San Francisco where he photographed the Golden Gate before the landscape was dominated by the Golden Gate Bridge.<br />
<br />
His gap year of sorts then took him up through Colorado and Salt Lake City to Canada before he finished in New York.
