I came across this sentence, in a British publication:

--- excaped from its flat-capped Ena Sharples image to a sophisticated modern company.

Does "flat-capped" mean "country" or "provincial".
I found that Ena Sharples is a character with this atributes.

Would company escaped from its provincial image to a modern one.

Thank you in advance.

Flat caps are headgear associated with provincial people from the past, Ena Sharples was a character in a British soap who was very traditional. So your interpretation is right.;-)

I hope you get this one, RED5, as I have no explanation at all for my messages disappearing out of this board. I have addressed this issue with you yesterday, all of a sudden message reappeared out of nowhere and today it's missing again...as if I have never put it in here in the first place. I am hoping you will receive this message before some Halloweeny ghosts take this one to a cyber message heaven again. For all those that can view this message...you are not seeing things. It's as real as it can get.

In case, you haven't noticed my message under "suggestions and comments".

Good day!

Natalie27,

I posted the same question with the same title "flat-capped Ena Sharples", in the Ask a Teacher forum before posting it here because I rethought my post was not such a general question.

I realize you have given a relpy for the post in the Ask a Teacher forum.
Maybe you have found the same thead here without your reply.

I appologize for any confusions.
Thank you.

Yeah, I caught onto it later on. No problem. Hope Red5 isn't mad at me for harrassing him....
