Product Description


A series of short letters to The Times between 1914 and 1985. The book has over 1000 ranging from humorous, informative and revealing, to downright daft written by both the famous and not-so-famous readers of the paper. February 1916 Films Good and Evil Sir, - Once, out of curiosity, I visited a cinema show in my neighbourhood. This is what I saw. Two men standing outside a doctor's house watching him through the Venetian blinds. He is seen locking up a bag of money in his desk. One man goes away to the telephone and sends an urgent message from an imaginary patient who lives some distance away. The doctor leaves the house. The men come in, lock the study door, break open the safe, and take the money. As they leave the room they see the doctor's wife and child coming downstairs in night attire; to stop their screams they gag and ill-treat them and then make off. A short time after this I read an account in the papers of a similar robbery in every respect, executed by two youths at Kensington. The facts speak for themselves. In case the subject is not sufficiently clear, all this appears on the screen! E.L.S September 1923 Work for War Veterans Sir, - May I suggest that ex-Service men should be employed from the Labour Exchanges to keep places in the theatre queues? It would be a great boon to these men, and would in no way interfere with the days' work. I would suggest that a certain number of men be registered for this work, and the public informed that orders could be taken at all Labour Exchanges before, say, 4pm daily. Mr. K. Lechmere, 13, Glyn Mansions, Kensington, W.14.
