'Mr Charles Forte makes his most recent appearance in the public eye as chairman of the London Publicity Advisory Committee, whose intention it is to tell the world of London's unmatched attractions – "the largest live theatre of any city, a rich musical life, fine hotels and restaurants, magnificent art galleries and museums ... the greatest city on earth, with something to offer all the year round". The plan received a well-deserved boost from last week's heatwave report, which described how "molten tar bulged over the curbs, and sweltering visitors rinsed their socks in the Trafalgar Square fountains"' (Punch, 26 June 1957, Page 781)
