OK--no question about the legal requirement.  I just doubt that loud equals authoritative, and any even-just-competent actress can be quite as loud and as authoritative. It's just a matter of projection, and I'm sure women who bartend develop it as well.
Cheers,
Nancy

I meant the person calling 'time' is in fact authoritative as it was a legal requirement to do this.  (the law is different now). The note of finality ends the drinking session - male voice often louder.

Yes, but although most bartenders would no doubt have been men, not all.  I'm not sure what the point is about "authoritative"
--?
It is a good script, but Valerie's note says it is "recounted" by Kellond.  Like many lines, it seems to have been dropped in as part of composing.  Another example is the lines by Marie Larisch, which Valerie calls "verbatim."

He did however put them in the setting of a pub with an authoritative voice for the final lines.  Good script writing.

One might also note that Eliot first heard these lines recounted to him by the Eliot's maid, Ellen Kellond (see facsimile notes by Valerie), so his own first sounds were a woman's voice. He called the passage "pure Ellen Kellond."
