Fleet Street

Fleet Street IT is not much of a street to look atjust the average narrow, crowded London street. But for the signs of the world's newspapers sticking out from its faades you could not distinguish it from a street given over to diamonddealing or chartered accountancy. Most of the really big newspaper offices, as it happens, are not in Fleet Street proper, but in one or other of its mean tributaries. Nor are its pavements crowded with longhaired, bluejawed men wearing black sombreros. Save for an occasional silkhatted bank messenger or a barrister from the Law Courts hurrying out for a quick poached egg in Groom's, his white ties fluttering, its floating population appears to be very much the same as that of St. Martin's Lane or Whitehall. Its only definite characteristic is that it is predominantly male. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

IT is not much of a street to look atjust the average narrow, crowded London street. But for the signs of the world's newspapers sticking out from its faades you could not distinguish it from a street given over to diamonddealing or chartered accountancy. Most of the really big newspaper offices, as it happens, are not in Fleet Street proper, but in one or other of its mean tributaries. Nor are its pavements crowded with longhaired, bluejawed men wearing black sombreros. Save for an occasional silkhatted bank messenger or a barrister from the Law Courts hurrying out for a quick poached egg in Groom's, his white ties fluttering, its floating population appears to be very much the same as that of St. Martin's Lane or Whitehall. Its only definite characteristic is that it is predominantly male.
