Early years[ edit ] Priestley was born at 34 Mannheim Road, Manninghamwhich he described as an "extremely respectable" suburb of Bradford.
Priestley employs the arrival and departure of the mysterious Mr. Golspie as the frame in which to paint a panoramic portrait of London life in the midst of the Great Depression. That Howard Dersingham, who fancies himself a gentleman, is not cut out for the business world enables Golspie to manipulate him with ease.
Golspie convinces Dersingham to pay him his unusually high commissions in advance as orders pour in without informing the unwitting head of the firm that the suppliers of the veneers have raised their prices by as much as seventy percent.
Within the frame of an intricate business swindle, Priestley explores the mood and values of a Britain that has gone awry after World War I. Traditional English values of hearth and home have been lost as a younger generation adopts the surface values of Hollywood films, falls prey to foreign, sometimes criminal, business practices, and desperately seeks a good time and easy money among the faceless multitudes wandering aimlessly along the overcrowded thoroughfares and dismal back streets of a bleak and unwelcoming city.Analysis of the Extract from "Angel Pavement" by timberdesignmag.comly.
