In Victorian times the women seemed so meek. I wonder if they screamed into a pillow when the family left for the day.

I didn't want either but I think I was bored stiff and it was on I really enjoyed it and I didn't have any problem following it but I don't think you could start this far in the season too much has happened I hope you can borrow the first 2 seasons because except gor the clothes and 1920 cars I think it's very Victorian

My parents watch it but I don't want to start watching in year 3, so I hope to borrow year one and two from the library soon.

I know it's not during Victorian times but does any body watch Downton Abbey I think it is a little like Victorian times with the servants and classes being so different

It seems overwhelming to me to sew something that fancy but they didn't have a hurry up and get it done attitude like we do now days

I have never ridden a horse but I guess the ladies really didn't. It would have been about the cart, cabriola, the sled or which ever.

I'm all about the costuming... I guess it was aall hand-sewn!

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*

I have always enjoyed studying Victorian time and feel very drawn to that period. I'm sure that life was only easy for those who were in the up[per class, though, as the servants and wiorkers had so few ways to lighten their chores...

We have come a long way since then but some things don't change for instance our vehicles are still used used to show ststus and some just get us where we are going and to save gas and money could you imagine riding in these especially in the cold weather now days it would be fun for a day but I wonder if we could do it every day resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.
