Virginia Woolf in London - 12 May, 1926
from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.3, 1925-30, pages 84-85:
The Strike was settled about 1.15 - or it was then broadcast. I was in Tottenham Court Rd. at 1 & heard Bartholomew & Fletcher's megaphone declaim that the T.U.C. leaders were at Downing Street; came home to find that neither L. nor Nelly had heard this: 5 minutes later, the wireless. They told us to stand by & await important news. Then a piano played a tune. Then the solemn broadcaster assuming incredible pomp & gloom & speaking one word to the minute read out: Message from 10 Downing Street.
