Thursday April 5, 1894

Map of MayfairWent to Admy but after waiting some time could not see Mr Awdry. Savile Club election.

William Christie, Astronomer Royal


RH says..... Two rather contradictory indications of the Astronomer Royal's status: the Assistant Secretary to the Admiralty was too busy to see him, but he was being invited again into the heart of fashionable Mayfair. His need to speak to Awdry was undoubtedly related to his plans for staff reorganisation or building works.
