At one time or another in the twentieth century the following place-names were sufficiently famous to be alluded to without further explanation. Any such list must necessarily be very selective. No foreign names are included here —even though that means omitting Agadir, Chanak, Munich and Suez. No venues of party conferences are included, even though that means omitting Scarborough (Labour, 1960) and Blackpool (Conservative, 1963). No constituency names are included as such, even though that means omitting some, like Bewdley or Ebbw Vale, which are indelibly associated with individuals and others where sensational elections had a lasting national impact, like Colne Valley (1907), St George’s Westminster (1931), East Fulham (1933), Orpington (1962), Smethwick (1964) and Lincoln (1973).
