The glitter of the parties/balls. Sometimes juxtaposed with visits to the British Museum or other more intellectual pursuits. Contemporary just doesn't do it as well.

Hi A Charole, oh yes, I can picture it now - a horse drawn carriage pulling up outside an elegant building, with the faint sound of stringed instruments floating into the street....you're absolutely right...contemporary just doesnt do it!
Even drifting round the British museum sounds so elegant, you can imagine the hero being solicitious of the heroines comfort, guiding her gently to objects of interst...sigh!
