    Well... Except The Strict Morals And Complete Lack Of Women's Rights...

    I love nearly all things Victorian, from architecture to clothing to manners.  In fact the only things I don't like about the era are the socioeconomic injustices, the legal dehumanization of women, and the suffocating overly-strict morals.  I have to say that I would have been...

    So Much To Take In.

    I have been somewhat fascinated by the victorian era for a long while now. Fan languages, corsets and bustle skirts, love tokens (often crafted from hair of the giver)...even the furniture. There was just a certain elegance to it all, but underneath there was this...unspoken...

    From the architecture, to the clothing, to the decoration, to the traditions, to the ideals. I love all things Victorian. It was a romantic time, everything was made to last and remain beautiful forever. I wish today held many of the same standards.

    Not Totally There

    I am a man who will admit he has certain passions for parts of the Victorian era. I do enjoy the sight of a corseted Lady, but I do not wish any woman to suffer the discomfort of a corset all day for me. The buildings and grounds are/were wonderful. But, I much preffer...

    I Am Very Fortunate

    ... to live in a European city overflowing with antiques of every description. But the things I prefer to collect are things that offer a glimpse into the everyday lives of normal Victorians: letters, photographs and jewellery. I have bought most of the items in my collection...

    More Neo-victorianism!

    I can't honestly say that I would like to live in the Victorian era. I mean, not now that I have lived in the 21st century. The internet, good healthcare, Kraft Dinner... I would miss it.But what I believe we truly need is a proper resurgence of those times. Things need to be...
