ALN had their major support base. The overall level of female illiteracy was 98 per cent, and while attempts were made in the 1950s to rapidly expand basic education for girls, in 1954 only 10.7 per cent received any form of primary schooling.

The course was a liminal social zone, yet one where women were treated respectfully and courteously, and could dress up, bet and socialise. Popular newspapers provided articles which catered for this new interest. Women’s betting was a hobby providing interest, thrills and potential financial independence.

They give very little trouble to the police and law courts, and it is seldom that the name of a French resident obtains an unbelievable notoriety in the newspapers. There are about 21,000 French sojourners in England, and about 11,000 of them in the metropolis.2 Clearly, what appealed to the Victorian values of the English authors was that the French community largely kept itself to itself yet, at the same time, integrated well
