"In 1901 ... [Newman Flower] left his bed at four in the morning to travel from Croydon to watch the funeral procession of Queen Victoria. He joined the crowd, and, to pass hours of waiting, stood reading ""Bleak House"". A stir eventually made him look up from his book; alas, the royal section of the cortege had gone."
