The Time Machine

why do you think the author includes these character types in the story?

Most of the characters from the Time Traveler's own era are not given proper names.

Character types help us hone in on specific characteristics of the stereotypical types readers often identify with. Without proper names, the reader must identify behaviors or other qualities of the people who are not named. One might even be able to use these behaviors/qualities to characterize the era in which the Time Traveler lives.
