This notion, in the vague
form in which it as come down to us,
is probably more easily accessible,
or, as some might have it, ‘fluffier’.
Still, few would deny that
places can have atmospheres,
but what one actually puts that
atmosphere down to is these days
largely a matter for personal delectation,
and hence, hardly likely to cause too much in the way of disruption.
In the past much more store was set by such things,
and these vague notions assumed
a more ‘concrete’ form
and were correspondingly
given greater weight.
But to what end?
