‘No hideous mechanism disturbs the quiet orderliness of the quayside, or casts its sinister shadow over sordid toil; the town’s work is done in peace, and in the midst of beauty, and at their labours men can see the sun, and hear the chirping birds and the ringing of the sacred bells.’ Russell Alexander
