The streets are usually unpaved, full of holes, filthy and strewn (filled) with refuse (garbage). Since they have neither gutters nor drains, the refuse accumulates (builds up) in stagnant (still), stinking puddles. The view of Manchester [England] is quite typical. The main river is narrow, coal-black and full of stinking filth and rubbish, which it deposits on its bank…One walks along a very rough path on the riverbank to reach a chaotic group of little, one-story, one-room cabins. …In front of the doors, filth, and garbage abounded… Questions: 1. The houses mentioned in the reading above are called [blank_start]tenement[blank_end] houses. 2. The social class that lives in the houses came from the [blank_start]working[blank_end]-class. 3. The houses described above were probably built by the [blank_start]factory[blank_end] owners
