Then, when "All fooU" have their day, the winter -of our discontent was to be made (more or less) glorious summer .'by the re-lighting of the lamps, and Lancefield was to burst forth once more upon an astonished world in a blaze of light. Apparently, to quote .a disgruntled-visitor's remark, " there must have been a bit of an' itch." Till the end^of April neither" steps," ?nor matches, nor any other things nor measures were taken to provide light. The condition and appearance of the town-o'nights meanwhile could only be fittingly and-feelingly described on . asbestos.
