Excerpt from Two Chicago Sketches: When the City Wakes to Life; Lake Michigan in Calm and Storm The daily parade of toil has begun, and here we are about to see a sight such as no other street in the United States can show - a sight that has long since given to this thoroughfare the immortal name of Dinner Pail avenue. Swing, swing, swing; tramp, tramp, tramp; here they come. And to welcome them the morning sun peeps up over the waste of downtown buildings and shines full in their faces. With a rhythmic sweep of power and dignity and all-pervading strength they race down, a great river of labor, onto the viaduct that shakes and quivers beneath their feet.
