News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

I came across this advertisement in Donald Maxwell's book, 'Unknown Kent' (1877) recently.
Although Thomas Hall of Windmill Street, Gravesend started the 'Free Press' in 1855 this is the first time I have come across it. Does anyone know how long the Free Press lasted or what happened to it?
