          Debs, given the Irish presence in Dorset St, one wonders what the reaction would have been if a customer asked, in an Irish accent, for a farthingsworth of prunes.

            I'll find the articles, How - and you transcribe them.

              Bob:

              Good idea. Tonight,after we sacrifice the neighbor's goat for the great feast of Ummagumma, I'll start transcribing the articles and then deleting the posts you put up...but give you the credit for finding them...snicker,chuckle,guffaw...but maybe I'll leave the one you just put up,since its longer than the list of excuses I have for not working on my D'Onston masterpiece...which of course, it is,except that its in my noggin.

              Thanks again for the help,Bob.

              Did anyone notice the date of the article Robert found ? 23 years after the WM's main skein? Yow !

              For Brits : Did World War One...and forgive me for sounding trite here...did it further accelerate positive changes in the East End ? I know that changes for the better came from the WM...so is this glimpse into the street life a reflection of the remaining pockets of poverty or a reflection of greater poverty and on a larger scale than maybe one would suspect still existing in the E.E. ?

                Hi How

                I don't think WW1 did much for the east end, except that women had played such a crucial role in the war, even thick politicians realised it was time to give them the vote.

                  See if you can find one with Nehrusthenia ( a glum outlook on life and lethargy cause by wearing one of those jackets !! )

                    The following item, from the Otago Witness 10th Sept 1896, used extensive quotes from Stephenson once the introduction was out of the way. I wonder if Stephenson got paid for this, or whether he'd already signed over all rights when he sold his work to Stead.
