Daily Life in Victorian England

Synopsis

Daily Life in Victorian England brings the past to life in a multitude of settings, from idyllic country estates to urban slums. Organized for easy reference, the volume provides information about the physical, social, economic, and legal details of daily life in Victorian England, with a special focus on groups often invisible in traditional history: children, women both at work and at home, and people who led respectable, ordinary lives. Excerpts from primary sources and over sixty illustrations enrich the work, providing a treasure trove of information for classroom and library use and for those interested in the fascinating era of Queen Victoria.
