the undertakers' ball

"The unseen colossus of Charing Cross Station has discharged its most copious load of passengers for the day, and that flood of humanity is advancing through the streets. Hundreds of clerks dressed in sombre black are spilling into view, a tumult of monochrome uniformity swimming towards offices that will swallow them up"
- Michel Faber, The Crimson Petal and the White
