    My nan used to talk about the cocoa rooms and I always thought she was having us on ! it seems there really was such places.

    .. the other thing was the 'penny lean' - I never believed her until I found out it was actually true !

    read page 2 of this thread - we have talked about the 'Penny Lean' before. It's a place where homeless people paid to lean on a rope, presumably to get some sleep ... I can't imagine being able to sleep like that !!
    How strange ! Evidently it is true.
