Have you ever longed to live in another century? I have. Not that I am dissatisfied with who and where I am today, but, I'd like, just for a short while, to live in the Victorian/Edwardian Era...along with Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, and, of course, Queen Victoria.
The times were not ideal, so what attracts me? Maybe it's the manners and dress, the architecture and the furnishings, or the dances and social gatherings. Come to think of it, my reasons are rather frivolous, which is not typical of me!
Below are some photos from that Era, and a few websites for you to peruse:
