Virginia Woolf in Dreux - late April, 1931

from The diary of Virginia Woolf, page 23:

So to Le Mans. Another grey & white curved, dignified, flat windowed ancient town [...] I voted for Dreux; so we went there - to Hotel de Paradis; & coming in heard the violins, & saw thinly dressed girls; cheap; rigged out in ready mades from the local shop. A wedding. Dancing already at 5.30.
