A piece on the 2000th birthday celebration in Paris, in which Bates contrasts French romanticism, sensuality, and conviviality with British practicality, rules, and reserve (including a postscript to an earlier article on the Festival of Britain called "Heigh Ho! Come to Battersea!"). With numerous photographs. In Illustrated (July 14, 1951, pp. 11-15, 45).
