An INTERNATIONAL HISTORIC Special Article Daudels A Report by: Idon Texist Six months ago, a celebrity family of 6 living in England left for a camping trip to the River Wensum. When they returned, the children brought back what appeared to be damaged, metallic objects. When reporters asked the children where they found the objects, they replied “Who are you,” “Are you guys aliens,” “Stop scaring me,” and “I want my mommy,” respectively. When the parents were asked where they obtained these objects from, the mother replied: “I’m not sure. We let them run around in the fields for an hour or two, and when they came back, they showed us pieces of metal.” Before she could even reveal her newest line of perfume made from cat sweat, our reporter on the inside had our team of researchers all over the river like stink on a dumpster.

What the researchers found was unbelievable. In the middle of a field, multiple pieces of rusted metal were found scattered around a big rusty pipe. The researchers tried to remove the pipe, but it wouldn’t budge. Then, they tried to dig out the bottom, which turned into a surprise when they dug out a strange insignia on the pipe, followed by the words: “Daudels Locomotive Company.” The research crew had uncovered the funnel of an old steam engine. When taken to a professional historian, he said the funnel was made back in the 1900’s in a town that was demolished in a bombing by the Central Powers in World War I. this town was known as Daudels. From the data collected across the span of half a day, here is the story of this old town as we knew of it. Unlike most towns, Daudels began a one of the few Spa Towns at the turn of the 18 th century. A typical day at Daudels might be an early morning communal bath followed by a private breakfast party. Afterwards, one either drank water at a pump room (a building constructed over a thermal water source) or went to a fashion show. The town was obviously a stopping area for the rich, aristocratic people. The next several hours of the day could be spent in shopping, visiting the library, attending concerts, or stopping at one of the coffeehouses. At 4:00 pm, the rich and famous dressed up in their finery and promenaded down the streets. Next came dinner, more promenading, and an evening of dancing or gambling. This obviously meant that the poor were not tolerated in this area, so living conditions were strict. The people of Daudels were also patrons of art as well, mostly along the topic of romanticism. While the main section of Daudels had flourished with art and wealth, the outer sections of the town had become more of a slum, filled with poor, malnourished and unattractive people, none of them receiving any of the town’s fabulous offers. Since the standards of living were set so high in Daudels, very few people would stay any longer than a day.

Further research revealed that this spa town didn’t last forever. As the Agricultural Revolution began, Daudels began to fall behind financially. Without the money to support the
