The evenings are lighter now the clocks have changed, but the temperature has dropped, and the clouds are drawing in over the city. This weather has delayed my foray into cycle commuting the 6.5 miles from the suburbs to the city. It looks like I’ll be on the grimey and stuffy local trains for at least another week.
The train snakes along the canal and through the tunnels, through centres of industry, great seats of learning, and the business districts. Finally emerging in the gloom of New St. The journey is a long section through the city, describing the whole process of the city. From dwelling, through industry, towards consumption.
