In response to Speculation- Mr Gardiner's Business, written by Caroline on May 13, 1998 at 14:19:52
] What do you think Mr Gardiner did for a living? He lived in Gracechurch Street, but he may not have worked there.Here's some wild guesses;
] 2.He had an import-export agency with offices in Holbourn and off The Highway.
] Seriously, what do you think?
In chapter 25 of P&P there is this line regarding Mr. Gardiner:
"Mr. Gardiner was a sensible, gentlemanlike man, greatly superior to his sister, as well by nature as education. The Netherfield ladies would have had difficulty in believing that a man who lived by trade, and within view of his own warehouses, could have been so well bred and agreeable."
His business was in Gracechurch Street, which is fairly near the river.. I think two may be close, but the location is off
