I adore the period. The architecture and home furnishings were astounding, artful and aesthetically pleasing – at least to me. Having read some true accounts from the period, yes, a strong cast system existed. Also the industrial period was just making head way so advancements in transportation (thinking business logistics), labor equipment (farming and mining) were still in their infancy.
It’s the romantic ambience of the era that leaves me fanning myself. *LOL*
