The British Library: Victorians

What was life in Victorian England like? The British Library shares posters, pamphlets, diaries, political reports, and illustrations that tell about this seven-decade stretch of the 19th century. This illustrative tour through a fascinating stretch of British history is told via a wonderful set of essays by Liza Picard that explore topics like "The Working Classes and the Poor" and "The Rise of Technology and Industry." Each essay includes documents aplenty, along with descriptions of everything from the newly invented telephone to Friedrich Engels's take on factory conditions in 1844. The site is a wonderful introduction to this slice of British history and could be used in a range of educational settings.
