Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'A young middle class man comes and sits on a seat nearby, and reads a book. Behind the rank on the top people are sitting. Noone seems very interested in the soldiers. Two kids, girls, crawl on the grass near one end of the rank, but they appear to be as much interested in their own game as in the soldiers. Two prams. Mothers gossiping - about five. Young girl, reading.'
