Geology in the Strand



News-Commentary, Drollery


Geology, Vulcanology

    Contemplates asking a geologist to 'ascertain the cause' of the frequent eruptions of 'flame and water' in the Strand and believes the cause must be 'an exhausted volcano' rather than imperfect gas pipes or water mains. Deeply worried by the prospect of walking over volcanoes 'every day of our lives'.
