“In England all classes, except the agricultural, dress alike—with a difference. Observe this lemonade-vendor. His dress is that of a prosperous middle-class man—gone to shreds and patches. It was otherwise in the time when Bankside held the dramatic glory of England: in the time of Shakespeare” (36).
