Great Attraction at Thorpe Henley



News-Commentary, Drollery


Light, Technology

    Discusses a report of a landlord in Thorpe Henley who produced gaslight by a 'simple apparatus attached to the tap-room fire'. Expects that the landlord will turn this into a profitable business and that tradesmen and domestic gas consumers will accordingly try to obtain gas cheaply from the kitchen rather than more expensively from 'the works of a Company'.
