Jane's Advent Calendar – 2nd December

The Two Chairman mid-18th public house, 30 Dartmouth Street SW1
The sedan chair originated in the 17th Century. Wealthy people paid "chairmen to carry them over the muddy streets.
It is suggested that “Cheerio” derives from people calling “Chair Ho” to attract the attention of chairmen.
