Yes, this is true - but the nature of today's capitalism is a lot more cut-throat.
Mid 19th century Manchester capitalism was less cut-throat than contemporary capitalism?!?
Sorry for the Offtopic.

not so crazy anymore - in US the level of wealth inequality is the same as during the Great Depression and will soon approach Victorian times levels. UK is not far behind in this process.

Thank you, that building is "Old Main", part of the Wayne State Univ campus in midtown Detroit.

See here a picture of this building taken in 1904:

And one of the streets above is Lake Shore Dr. (you can see the street sign), a scenic drive on the coast of Lake St. Clair (one of the Great Lakes). Sadly the tourists won't find because it is surrounded by bad neighborhoods.

Here are some pictures I took on Lake Shore Dr. Please excuse the quality, they were taken in a moving car. The lake is in the background:

When I was studying at Wayne State I lived in a 10 stories building, right behind Old Main from the angle of the picture. The building was demolished some years ago - time passes by so fast
