Fashion Temple ' "\ , By MILTON RRONNLIl NKA Service Writer .LONDON—In a dustry barn in the East End of London stands a coach of old-fashioned design which recently .was offered (or sale, in the classified columns of n New York newspaper for the modest sum of S47SO. Sounds like a lot of money for a second-hand vehicle when for that pi ice one can buy a fc\v up-to-date automobiles. But if inanimate objects could talk, the old coacli pio bably would deliver this sad monoicgue: "How the mighty have fallen! Once upon u time I was cherished; new I stand In this eld barn. Once many servants kept me si>otles.s; m,\v.I am I'.eyleclecl nnd clnsty. Once my sides were glossy with bright r' yal blue paint and there one saw n brlllianl red 'N' and an equally brilliant red crowp. "Oh, I was the coach of coaches all right. Two splendid horses black ac coal, pulled me along. A driver in splendid livery sat in front scat and ynthered up the reigns. A p"slillion sat in the seat behind. Crack went the driver's whip, and "we"drove out of the stable and up to a fine palace.

The Firsl "Sedan" So once mnrc the coacli played its part in history, for after th! disastrous battle of Sedan in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. the tragic emperor traveled in this coach to surrender to the vict-ri- cus Priitsinn trcops. Hence it got Its name of "Sedan Carriage." In the latter part of 1371. an entorprlslng tradesman of Paris c-ntcivcd Ihc idea of forming a collection of relics of the Franco- Prusslnn War, tli2 French Revolution and the dr.ys of Napoleon the First and cf making an exhibition of them. He opened the exhibition in London in the autumn of 1872. But the show did not prosper and the exhibits were sold by aucli-n. Madame Tussaud has opened her *orld-fnmous exhibition of wax works in Baker street and, In addition to the wax figures of wcrlrt celebrities, also wanl-d a collection ol genuine relics connected wilh great historical events. So the bought the old coach, it was put on show in the great central hall of the building.! she occupied. In 1925 a great fire completely gulfed ir.e Tussaud museum and the old coach was one of the few things re.-cued. Tiissaiid's sold il lo the motor engineering firm of G.
