The Victorian Vestibule provides passageway 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 and 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 here is drawn from my academic 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.
I originally began this blog during 2010-2011 as an experiment in releasing some of my research in academic papers and books into a more accessible and digestible format. During a resting period some of the image links in these original posts have been hacked and I’m too busy at the moment to replace all the images lost as a result *deep sigh*. Nonetheless, I hope you still find passing through my Victorian Vestibule interesting and informative.
Please feel free to have a look around.
Thank you for visiting!
