Victorian Time Piece

I was reading in "Pickwick Papers" about how Mr. Pickwick flung open his windows in the morning and gazed down from his lodgings at Goswell Street.
The Victorian clock above the fire place struck two and I happened to look at it. To my surprise I saw that it was made by Edwards, Goswell Street, London.
The coincidence reminded me that we are connected to previous generations and that the London of Charles Dickens was in fact, not too long ago.
