An old woman scavenges from the heap, another child shows off his own find, and washing flutters in the breeze overhead.

It was a town of machinery and tall chimneys, out of which interminable serpents of smoke trailed themselves forever and ever…It had a black canal in it, and a river that ran purple with ill-smelling dye. [it was] inhabited by people…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” — Charles Dickens, Hard Times 1) How does the author of this passage describe the lives of people in the factory system during the industrial revolution? 2) Which problem of the industrial revolution is the subject of this passage? Cite evidence from the text Passage B Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865) was a British writer whose novels show a sympathy for the working class. Elizabeth Gaskell’s Mary Barton is a work of fiction. Yet it provides a startingly accurate portrayal of urban life in Britain’s industrial cities espcially in a Manchester slum. You went down one step even from the foul area into the cellar in which a family of human beings lived. It was very dark inside. The window-panes many of them were broken and stuffed with rags….the smell was so fetid as almost to knock the two men down….they began to penetrate the thick darkness of the place, and to see three or four little children rolling on the damp, nay wet brick floor, through which the stagnant, filthy moisture of the street oozed up. - Elizabeth Gaskell, Mary Barton (1848) 3) Does this seem like a healthy place to live? Why or why not? 4) Why did families live under conditions as described in the document above? (draw conclusion) 5) Based on the account in Passage A and Passage B, how did the industrial Revolution affect people’s lives?
