Inhaltsangabe: Rabelais, or his wild illustrator Gustave Dore, must Lave had something to do with the designing of the things called flats in England and A merica. There is something entirely Gargantuan in the idea of economising space by pilmg houses on top of each other, front doors and all. And in the chaos and complexity of those perpendicular streets anything may dwell or happen, and it is in one of them, I believe, that the inquirer may find the offices of the Club of Queer Trades. It may be thought at the first glance that the name would attract and startle the passer-by, but nothing attracts or startles in these dim immense hives. The passer-by is only looking for his own melancholy destination, the Montenegro Shipping Agency or the London office of the Rutland Sentinel, and passes through the twilight passages as one passes through the twilight corridors of a dream.
