This is a a novel appropriation of the premises formerly known as Hungerford-hall, Strand, which is now made a spacious thoroughfare to the suspension-bridge and steam-boats. Upon the walls are effectively-displayed advertisements; and classified registers are kept for gratuitous reference. As the traffic to the steam-boats exceeds six millions annually, great publicity is ensured for the wallannouncements, and the establishment bids fair to prove extensively useful, and deserves encouragement. The concentration which it ensures must greatly economise the time of persons in quest of information.
