Sub Section:  Clubs and Their Members
The  businessman looked  forward to the leisure--as well as the prestige--that  the clubs provided their carefully selected members. The club was a place  for men to make business contacts, to broker yacht sales (for themselves or others), or just to sit with a good cigar and read undisturbed by family claims upon one's time.  While their families traveled abroad in the Summer, the businessmen often ate their meals at the clubs. It would not be until 1907  that the first social club for women, the Colony, would open.
