THE BRITISH ARE COMING!:

Earl of Sandwich: Back among the Common folk (Boston Globe, September 12, 2011)

After 235 years of independence, is it finally safe to let the British nobility back on Boston Common? For first time since Evacuation Day in 1776, a titled Englishman may soon occupy one of the most historic plots of ground in the United States.

Not that anyone would immediately recognize the Pink Palace, a 1920s-era public restroom on Boston Common that has been unused for decades, as a place of historic import. It is slated to be transformed into a sandwich shop in the next two years. The owner of the shop will be a company called Earl of Sandwich, which has an affiliation with the 11th Earl of Sandwich.
