Sometimes the view from the back is more interesting.
(Pullman town architect Solon Spencer) Beman rarely discussed his work, and when he did, he did it laconically. At the opening of one of his buildings in Terre Haute, Indiana, he quoted an architect in Charles Dickens’s Martin Chuzzlewit:
My friends… my duty is to build, not speak; to act, not to talk; to deal with marble, stone and brick, not language.

According to one of the residents:
We are born in a Pullman house, fed from the Pullman shop, taught in the Pullman school, catechized in the Pullman church, and when we die we shall be buried in the Pullman cemetery and go to the Pullman hell.
