A night out at the cinema and the adverts reveal what a wondrous place you live in! No-one with a coal fire can be lacking in "health, comfort [or] economy". You may be drowning but "all kinds of waving" are available from Percy Peach, and Sims the butcher ensures a happy family with every joint sold. The jewellers can provide rings that are "a pledge of joy to every bride",the florist flowers, a "gift that speaks when words fail" (useful, no doubt, for some errant grooms).
