Visit Our Sister Site: Mostly-Victorian.com!

Do you love everything Victorian? Then we invite you to check out our sister site: Mostly-Victorian.com, where the Victorian world comes to life!

Mostly-Victorian.com is a growing archive of articles from Victorian and Edwardian periodicals (as well as, eventually, some periodicals that predate the Victorian period). The site covers such topics as Victorian life, women's issues, social issues, royalty, home decor, fashion, cooking, arts and crafts, nature, the Victorian countryside, Victorian London, world travel and cultures (from a uniquely Victorian perspective), history, literature and more. It's the ideal place to find out how Victorians lived, worked, dined and entertained, dressed, dealt with servants, etc. -- straight from "the horse's mouth." (It's also a great place to see how some of your favorite historic British travel destinations looked in Victorian times!) The site currently features more than 600 articles, with more added every month. [Note: We're right in the midst of a massive update project and hope, by the end of the year or early 2014, to have added hundreds of "new" articles to the site - check back for details!]

Nor is this site just for people interested in research -- it's fun!. It's packed with loads of articles that are worth reading just because they're enjoyable, as well as a selection of classic literature from the period.
