I think they aslo have elastic-sided boots and they lean out of windows pretending to listen to street music to display their 'fascination'... I wonder if that also has elastic!

We can only hope it does! Elastic merchants everywhere must have been ecstatic.

Passages from the Life of a Philosopher is a rather marvellous book, and rather highlights why Babbage fell out with Clements.
