"Hard Times" is without a preface and illustrations. In most of his other novels the scenes are mostly set in London, but it is the only novel not to have its scenes set in London. The story is set in a fictitious town called Coketown, a generic Northern English mill-town. The place seems to be somewhat similar to Manchester, although it is much smaller. It is assumed that Coketown is partly based on 19th century Preston. The town represents the Victorian industrial growth.
