“The effect of the quaint old High Street with its gabled houses and miniature town hall lit by electric light is so strangely theatrical that one almost expects to see a bevy of fair damsels appear from the side and dance across the streets while the heavy villain of the piece is attempting to hide himself in the deep shadow at the back of the town hall.” (source: The Graphic)
