. . . This site is dedicated to all those who generously preserve the past for our future generations. It is my hope that you will be able to document the lives of your Victorian ancestors and enjoy getting to know them from a historical perspective. To see their photos and be able to know what they did for a living, who their children were and how many they had, what the world around them must have looked like, and perhaps even what kind of things they might have enjoyed. Please feel free to use the art on this site for your personal albums, scrapbooks, and non-commercial web sites/pages. If you use any of these images on your web site/page, please give me credit and a link back to your favorite page on this site. Each image comes from my personal archives of U.S. Victorian publications and postcards. (I have included a circa year on each piece of art so that you will have a better idea in which decade to place it.) Thanks for visiting and enjoy!
A delightful look back at the advice and expressions of the Victorian Era.
As quoted from: The Art of Home Making
by Margaret E. Sangster, c. 1898
The choice of a school is a very important thing. In these days, when graded schools and excellent public schools abound in cities, many parents at once send their children there. There is, however, a choice among these, and a choice also between public and private schools. For some children the smaller private school is far better during the first years, and where parents can afford to pay for their children's tuition, they should hesitate long before sending a little child into the crowded classroom where one young teacher is obliged to train as many as fifty or sixty children, which frequently happens in our large cities.
