You’ve seen Hampton. The promenade, the
parasols, the polite conversation amidst the teacups. There is nothing of it
that breathes. There is nothing of it that is alive and quick and stinking and
bright. Whitechapel is life in all its wild and rotten splendor. Beside it, the
rest of the world seems a tomb.

What a beautiful car. This is a classic isn't it? Look how big and shiny. Oh look at it's panels with brushed aluminum trim. This is a fine piece of mechanical bliss. I wonder how it feels to drive it. Nice.
Baby! Oh how beautiful you are in person.<br>

In 1932, an English bank moved into its new headquarters at 219–229 Baker Street, London. Does that sound familiar? Their new location was thought to include 221B Baker Street, the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes! He received visitors and mail, just like a real-life person.
So for many years the bank employed a secretary who answered the mail sent to Holmes!
