Dickens on a 19th century industrial town

” It contained several large streets all very like one another, and many small streets still more like one another, inhabited by people equally like one another, who all went in and out at the same hours…. to do the same work, and to whom every day was the same as yesterday and tomorrow, and every year the counterpart of the last and the next”

Dickens, Hard Times, 1854
