“Did you know that you can get one of the best-cooked meals in London at the Hotel and Restaurant Technical School at the Westminster Technical Institute?
Did you know that in Victoria Park in east London the L.C.C. runs the finest “Lido” in the country?
Did you know that at Avery Hill, Eltham, the L.C.C. has provided the largest Palm Houses and Greenhouses outside Kew?
Do you know that no one, however poor, need ever sleep out in London, that a bed is ready for any destitute man who applies at the L.C.C. Welfare Office?
The L.C.C. is not at all the sort of body to rest on it’s laurels.”
