It was sickening to see tho appalling poverty in London streets in contrast to this sort of absurd luxury. When t,he war broke out, however, all suoh evid nces of luxury disappeared, and women would pull up their cars in London streets, tmh to the news boya and eagerly scan the papers for the latest engagement at the front or in the North Sea.
