Most Of The Buildings Here Had Gone Up In The 1960s, And Rebus Hated Them: Blocks Of Sand-colored Concrete Replacing The Square's Original Eighteenth-century Town Houses. Rows Of Treacherous Steps, And A Notorious Wind-tunnel Effect Which Could Blow Over The Unwary On The Wrong Day. Students Walked Between The Buildings, Hugging Books And Folders In Front Of Them. Some Stood And Chatted In Groups."Bloody Students," Was Wylie's Concise Summing-up Of The Situation.]

Quotes About Milad

"My Aunt Dahlia, who runs a womans paper called Miladys Boudoir, had recently backed me into a corner and made me promise to write her a few words for her "Husbands and Brothers" page on "What the Well-Dressed Man is Wearing". I believe in encouraging aunts, when deserving; and, as there are many worse eggs than her knocking about the metrop, I had consented blithely. But I give you my honest word that if I had had the foggiest notion of what I was letting myself in for, not even a nephews devotion would have kept me from giving her the raspberry. A deuce of a job it had been, taxing the physique to the utmost. I dont wonder now that all these author blokes have bald heads and faces like birds who have suffered." - Author: P.G. Wodehouse
