Think of brick streets, stone chimneys, narrow alleys, fog, snow, scarves, bells sounding, horses pulling carriages, Charles Dickens, and people milling about, laughing and drinking giant mugs of dark beer. Think of longshoremen, soldiers, sailors, merchants and working class Englishmen. Think of cockney accents, fistfights and avoiding Jack the Ripper, the Wolfman, Mr. Hyde and other nefarious baddies. This is a Porter… this is 19th Century London.
