SHOPPING RESTRICTIONS IN ENGLAND London, Nov. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916
SHOPPING RESTRICTIONS IN ENGLAND (From Our Special Representative.) London, Nov. 2. On the whole the new shop-closing rule, which came into operation on Monday, has been accepted in a spirit of cheerfulness by the majo rity of Londoners, and the people are settling down to the changed order of things in regard to shop ping with as little murmuring as they have acquiesced in many other unpleasant things brought about by the war. Some thoughtless folk, of course, suffered inconvenience through having forgotten to have their wants in the shape of cat ables required for breakfast sup plied before S o'clock in the evening when Ihe shops were compulsorily closed, but one or two experiences of that, kind sufficed -to cure them of their absent-mindedness. Devo tees of "My Lady Nicotine" who suffer from the same affliction, were also denied for a time the solace of their favourite brands of the fragrant weed, and "Don't you read the newspapers ?" was a query which many barmaids and waiters f...

THE DARKNESS OF LONDON London, Nov. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916
THE DARKNESS OUF LONHON London, Nov. 2. The met ropolis is i dark and dreary place after nightfall, con sequent upon the lighting restric tions, and it is amazing how the millions of people are able :o tr. verse the city streets, and get to their homes in the suburbs after ,the business of tW. day is done, with so few accidents. For this, credit is due to the splendid Metropoli tan Police Force, whose coutrol of the enormous and bewildering street traffic is the admiration of visitors from all o.her large cities of the world. Now tifatt the shops are obliged to close earlier, the thoroughfares are darker than ever. Notwith standing this, however, there are no indications of increased activity on ;the part of those undesirable mem bers of the community who love darkness better than light. On the contrary a" great change for tme bet 'ter has come over London. There may be poverty, but few signs of it are seen: and there may be disorder, but .it does not show itself. Whitehall and Vict...
