This is a small triangular area on the northwestern part of the city that forms a very old neighborhood here. This place was first known during the mid- 19th century when mill and factory workers came and settled down over here. The rows of cute 2- storey houses all look alike. These were the patent designs of the houses in which mill workers stayed with their families. The larger stone houses were occupied by the managers or supervisors.
At present what we find here is that they have tried to keep up with the traditional culture and lifestyle of the city. As you take a walk along the streets here you will be mesmerized by the fact that shabbiness can also be beautiful sometimes. There are also quite a few free schools and libraries also. It is till date that most of the middle class families accommodate the houses over here.
