R.D.Blumenfeld’s Diary, October 3, 1890:

It is good to be in London again. I love to sit on the top of an omnibus watching the vista of black silk hats, like dark poppy fields. You can no more separate a Londoner from his top hat and his shiny black brief bag, which every self-respecting Briton carries to and from his office, than you can separate the Ethiopian from his skin.
