The Dome – 1822

Thomas Traverse wrote about Brighton to his brother Charles – in verse.
Would you dare rhyme ‘silly’ with Chantilly?

It is not only today’s enthusiasts for animal welfare who are against French ‘foie gras’ and the inhumane way of producing it.  Even in 1822, geese were seen as suffering as they were force fed and hot-housed to produce the meaty delicacy.  But perhaps they were not suffering as much as George IV’s horses cooped up in the stables, now known as The Dome.
