Answer: Mr. Lorry is the gentleman who opens the story The Tale of Two Cities. He has worked for Tellson's Bank for many years and is now charged with the task of informing young Lucie Mannette that her father has just been released from an 18 year imprisonment. Mr. Lorry is around 60 years old, and of modest dress, though he likes to show off his calves. He is a continuing character and good family friend throughout the book and it is hinted that he is a little in love with Lucie. Mr. Lorry is the stodgy banker in the novel. The narrator pokes some fun at him throughout.
