WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH LONDON? [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 15 December 1866
WHAT IS TO BE DONE WITH LONDON ? fFrom tJie Utandard.] What is to be done with London ? It is becoming unmanageably vast. Its suburbs are cities. Its ends are too far apart. It has outgrown the power of road vehicles and horseflesh to supply means of locomotion from one point to another. They who would travel across the English Pekin must use steam above or under ground. The buildings in some parts have already been carried so high that, their topmost floors have to be reached by machinery. Then what are we to do ? The streets are absolutely choked ; the roadways and footways at certain hours of the day are impassable ; the free bridges are dangerously thronged; the main crossings are the scenes of continual accidents. We are suffering, indeed, a sort of ' Babylonian woe.' And all the time wide tracks and clearings are being made by highways of masonry, whose curves are winding through ihe town, piercinsj ?whole ranges of habitations and displacing the dwellers. Even for tha subterr...
