When the London City Council decided to create a new boulevard called the Aldwych during the late 19th century, two British entrepreneurs saw a considerable opportunity for personal prosperity. Amid the road’s construction, the two entrepreneurs, Edward Sanders and Thomas Wild, purchased real estate at the northern end of the Aldwych for the creation of a grand hotel. They both hoped that their hotel would enthrall the great flood of people that were certain to travel along the new road. Named the Waldorf Hotel after the famous millionaire, William Waldorf Astor, the men hoped the Astor family name would affix great prestige onto the building. Sanders and Wild were not disappointed. Opened in 1908, the hotel rapidly became one of the most prestigious businesses in all of London. Exhilarating dance parties happened regularly at the Waldorf Hotel’s Palm Court ballroom.
