"Passageway" Quotes from Famous Books

At the further end a door stood ajar, and wondering what was in the room beyond, I traversed the long passageway and looked within.

It was Roberts, my secretary, with the word that Foster had lifted the watch from Ocean View, the little town at the neck of the peninsula, where bay and ocean narrow the passageway to one thoroughfare, over which every machine must pass that goes by land from San Francisco.
