    1. The setting of the story can be confirmed as England in 1843 because of three things: a) Scrooge and his nephew talk about Parliament which is he English government. b) When talking to some men who are collecting for the poor he asks if the Treadmill and Poor Law are in full vigor. These were laws in England that imprisoned those who were unable to pay their bills. c) When the ghost of present is asked if he has elder brother he says, “More than 1800…” meaning that it has to have taken place sometime within this period.
