Here is a short intro to this blog,
It has been running now for several years and in that time we have explored the lives of Victorian photographers and the people who sat for their portraits to be taken.
The images on this site represent a wide range of 19th century Victorians from the lower working classes up to Royalty, from both Great Britain and the wider world. Whatever your interest in the world of Victorian photography, be it fashion, social history or even advertising, there is plenty here to interest and possibly entertain you.
You can leave comments, hopefully positive, on what you have seen or contact me for further information about the contents of the blog.
