It is interesting to ponder the off-beaten track a simple search can take you.
As part of a random question, someone asked about the phrase “Very Few Cars Made It Up The Long Hill.” The phrase is from Professor Peter Trudgill, a sociolinguist, and was a diagnostic test sentence for classifying regional accents in the British Isles. The search on this subject turned up a wonderful thing. The British Library created a sound archive of many of the recordings of regional accents and dialects. These recordings cover decades of culture and social life within Britain and how things have changed in society.
