Harrods Escalator and The Girl with Torn Jeans




This information was gleaned from a TV documentary on Harrods


Harrods Escalator


Harrods was the first department store

To install escalators in UK

Customers were delighted, ecstatic

To be moved without walking each way


At the top were attendants all waiting

To lessen their psychological jolt

Men were provided with brandy

While ladies could sniff smelling salts



Harrods and The Girl with Torn Jeans


A girl went to enter at Harrods

(Which requires it's dress entry code seen)

The doorman he said quite politely

“I'm sorry miss, you can't come in with torn jeans”


But sir, these torn jeans that I'm wearing

I bought in your store yesterday

The doorman shook his head most politely

And the girl in disgust walked away

Keith has got this ripple
This ripple raspberry thing
Methinks he has been starved of it
And now he's on a binge

I can but only warn you both
That binging on such treats
Can have a fatal feetal end
Of reducing length of feet

Didn't you know this?....?

Two stories encapsulated into two poems and full of interest of days past.

Thank you for this

" While ladies could sniff smelling salts"

I am not sure about that line since chocolate would have been more appropriate,
after all, fair's fair, the men did get brandy.
