I found this in Longmans’ English Grammar, published in 1916 and given me for Christmas:
The shepherd is in the field;
his sister is in the cottage.
The queen was in the parlor;
the king was in his counting house.
The lad has gone to his home.
The citizens fled into the country.
The fisherman is at sea.
A policeman was walking up the street.
The workman was digging in his garden.
The girls were sent to school.
The old man was waiting at the station for his son.
The child fell over the cliff.
