Vauxhall Gardens

On the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens page, I have added the text of three letters written in 1739 from S.Toupee to The Scots Magazine.

The letters tell in wonderful fine detail how an evening there was passed, with details of how folks travelled there, what they ate and drank when they got there and even who looked after their dogs whilst they enjoyed the music!  The letters bring to life this classic Eighteenth Century night out.
