Victorian waistcoats

Victorian waistcoats

From 1837 until 1901 lived the much-famed Queen Victoria and her year of rule marked many discoveries and inventions. It was during the rule of Queen Victoria that Britain expanded its rule becoming the most powerful as well as the richest and the largest empire throughout history. Indeed, Queen Victoria was even Empress of India. Of course, much of this domination by the British Empire brought with it harsh treatment and this caused much tension until many of the countries at one time dominated by Britain gained back their independence.

The Victorian era also saw huge growth and we can thank this era for inventions that we could hardly live without today such as the telephone, the car, the bicycle and a moving film which transformed lifestyles. Queen Victoria believed very strongly that everybody, young and old, rich and poor should be educated and so by the end of Queen Victoria’s reign going to school was compulsory for all children. Many people during the Victorian era were unable to read but by the end of the Victorian era more and more children could read and could become immersed in the wonders of literature. Famous stories such as The Jungle Book became much loved adventure stories from the Victorian era.
