People & Other Aggravations

It was a town of red brick,

3

or of brick that would have been red if the smoke and ashes had allowed it,

4

but as matters stood it was a town of unnatural red and black like the painted face of a savage.

5

It was a town of machinery and tall chimneys,

6

out of which interminable serpents of smoke trailed themselves forever and ever,

7


and never got uncoiled.
