Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - A fine October morning in the north east suburbs of London, a vast district many miles away from the London of Mayfair and St. James's, much less known there than the Paris of the Rue de Rivoli and the Champs Elysees, and much less narrow, squalid, fetid and airless in its slums: strong in comfortable, prosperous middle class life: wide-streeted, myriad-populated: well-served with ugly iron urinals, Radical clubs, tram lines, and a perpetual stream of yellow cars: enjoying in its main thoroughfares the luxury of grass-grown 'front gardens,' untrodden by the foot of man save as to the path from the gate to the hall door: but blighted by an intolerable monotony of miles and miles of graceless, characterless brick houses, black iron railings, stony pavements, slaty roofs, and respectably ill dressed or disreputably poorly dressed people, quite accustomed to the place, and mostly plodding about somebody else's work, which they would not do if they themselves could help it. The little energy and eagerness that crop up show themselves in cockney cupidity and business 'push.' Even the policemen and the chapels are not infrequent enough to break the monotony.The sun is shining cheerfully: there is no fog: and though the smoke effectually prevents anything, whether faces and hands or bricks and mortar, from looking fresh and clean, it is not hanging heavily enough to trouble a Londoner.
