Special Notes to Invites: I'm not seeking to find just any old person who happens to have one interest or another on their Interests lists that matches ours...I chose you because I'm looking for special people who seem to have a feel for that beautiful point in time of late 19th century London. Whose LJ and profile, whether Friends Only or not, seem to represent for me the kind of people who would enjoy this type of community. For the people that I extend a sepcial invitation to, I feel that you can bring a certain element to the community that I'm looking for. Oh, and PS: the fact that I'm inviting certain people doesn't mean anyone can't still join, of course!
