NB. My blog was recently hacked and many images replaced with advertisements. I have had to delete all of these and eventually I will replace the lovely images I’ve lost from my posts.
The Victorian Vestibule provides entry to the historical homes and households of Britain between 1837 and 1901, with the odd peek around neighbouring Georgian and Edwardian doorways. From the houses to their occupants, from their trinkets to their trousers, property in all its guises is examined in this blog to reveal the business of life.
Much of the detail in these web pages is drawn from my History doctorate (University of Oxford, 2003) and my other peer reviewed publications on the Victorian home, household, housebuilding, money, debt, and entrepreneurial ventures. I also make reference to many excellent and very readable research publications by other academic historians. The full details of these are listed at the bottom of each post.
Thank you for visiting!
P.S. This blog is currently ‘resting’ during my maternity leave. In the meantime, I am still tweeting on matters historical at @historicaljunky
