A whole wall full of coats

When they swapped their everyday clothes for their workwear, the workers would temporarily leave their individuality at the factory gate. They were no longer Mr Johnson or Mr Smith, but just another replaceable cog in the factory's wheels. Once they passed through the factory gate, they entered a world where their private life was left outside. However, many of the benefits that we enjoy today, such as accident insurance and health insurance, actually have their beginnings in the industrial age.
