National Geographic : 1932 May
AMERICANS OF TASTE AND INTELLIGENCE don't come to Europe to collect data of bathrooms. They come to gather the flowers of European culture. The Lake District is a garland of English culture! Over these hills and dales Coleridge and Wordsworth used to walk and argue the rules of prosody. By the side of these lakes Ruskin walked to find relief from the heat of his own indignation. Southey wandered here wondering what he could do to save his brother-in-law, the "damaged Archangel" as Charles Lamb called him. Come and live for a few days where great English poets lived. Some of the best trains in the world go from Euston Station to the Lake District. LMS LONDON MIDLAND AND SCOTTISH RAILWAY OF GREAT BRITAIN Illustratedpamphlets from T. R.
