Example text

We had learned by this time that all well regulated hotels in the medium sized towns, and even in some of the larger cities — as large as Bristol, for instance — have two dining rooms, one, generally for tourists, called the “coffee room,” with separate small tables, and a much larger room for “commercials,” or traveling salesmen, where all are seated together at a single table. The service is practically the same, but the ratio of charges is from two to three times higher in the coffee room. We found many old hotels in retired places where a coffee room had been hastily improvised, an innovation no doubt brought about largely by the motor car trade and the desire to give the motorist more aristocratic rates than those charged the well-posted commercials.

In the main it is unusually broad and well kept, but progress will be slow at first, as the suburbs extend a long way in this direction, and for the first twenty-five miles one can hardly be said to be out of the city at any time. Ten miles out the road passes Greenwich, where the British observatory is located, and Woolwich, the seat of the great government arsenals and gun works, is also near this point, lying directly by the river. Nearly midway between London and Rochester is the old town of Dartford, where we enjoyed the hospitality of the Bull Hotel for luncheon.

Then there is the quaint little church of St. Martins, undoubtedly one of the oldest in England, and generally reputed to be the oldest. Here, in the year 600, St. Augustine preached before the cathedral was built. Neither should St. John’s hospital, with its fine, half-timbered gateway be forgotten; nor the old grammar school, founded in the Seventh Century. Our stay in the old town was all too short, but business reasons demanded our presence in London on Monday, so we left for that city about two o’clock.
